Hi my name is Angie and I have been in early years education and part of the ‘Caterpillars family’ for over 22 years. My inspiring motivation is to enable every one of our children to thrive and excel, fostering their individual curiosity and sense of motivation. I have a strong passion for the natural outdoor environment in which we live, and take the greatest pleasure in seeing children engage freely, displaying 'awe and wonder' in their 'outdoor world'. Here at Caterpillars with our unique pedagogical ethos, I relish in creating innovative and inspirational ‘enquiry based learning’ opportunities, that will empower the lifelong self confidence and self aspirational foundations for each and every child that we care for.
