Laura has a level 3 qualification in Childcare and has worked in nursery settings for over 15 years. She has worked in several forest school preschools and is keen to continue learning both through practical experience and education. During the Forest School training Laura was inspired by the emphasis on nurturing each person through listening to one another, respecting independence and individuality and sharing good food (She loves campfires!) Laura has had great fun continuing this in our Forest School sessions. Laura is thrilled to be part of the team at Happy Adventures Preschool.
