NICKIE (Head Teacher)

I opened the Monkey House in 1996, having previously spent many years as a Nanny. I completed my BA Honours Degree in Education and Training Studies (Early Years) in 2014 and in July 2015 successfully completed my Early Years Initial Teacher Training (Qualified Teacher Status). Having an interest in special needs has led me to complete various courses including Makaton which we use within the setting.  I am also studying to become a Play Therapist and Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy Practitioner.
