Early Years Consultant
Ruth works as an Independent Consultant based in North London. As a former Primary, Nursery and Children’s Centre Headteacher she believes that children learn best in environments that provide
opportunities to risk take, experiment, practise, think and discover - both indoors and out. The method of 'planning in the moment' for our youngest children ensures that their learning is
fulfilling and meaningful. Ruth's currrent work includes coaching practitioners who are working with children with additional needs, enabling them to be included in
school using a developmental approach based on early years principles.

Her work in that foundation stage led to Outstanding grades in three OFSTED inspections without any forward planning or focus activities! She is passionate about the need for children to feel confident and independent. Outdoor learning and risk taking play a large part in the experience she offers the children.
