Work with Ruth
My mission is to get all children learning through play!
My aim is to empower parents and professionals to do this. Play allows children to use their creativity while developing their imagination, dexterity, and physical, cognitive, and emotional strength. Play helps children develop a love of learning in order to thrive!
Schools and EYFS Settings
I remain very ‘hands on’ in education and schools and work as a consultant and trainer using my specialist expertise in Early Years, Key Stage One and Inclusion to provide high-quality support across the whole primary school age range.
I have worked in both mainstream and additional resourced provision settings, most recently as a Deputy Headteacher and pride myself in taking a unique approach to supporting the parents, teachers and children I am privileged to work with. Children are always at the heart of everything I do!
I offer a range of workshops, coaching and support for parents and staff in your school or setting, both 1:1 and in small groups.
