Makaton fosters communication skills. It can benefit young or older children and adults with disabilities, people with dementia or those that have suffered a stroke. One of the advantages of Makaton is that it allows each person to use the level they are comfortable with, whether that is vocal, hand-signing, or using symbols. As a qualified Makaton Trainer with a license from the Makaton Charity, I have the expertise to give each individual the training they need.


For childminders, nurseries, and playgroups, I offer training and support in a range of subjects. My goal is to give you the assistance you need to improve your skills and the learning outcomes of your children. I also offer a support service that includes risk assessments to help ensure your childcare environment is low-risk and that you achieve a positive Ofsted outcome. I’m passionate about fostering an interest for learning in children.


I serve as a qualified, nurturing assessor for NVQ students and apprenticeships in childcare, administration and management. With over three decades of experience in childcare, I have the expertise to provide professional assistance and support to those that need it. My focus is on using this knowledge to teach you and improve your ability. Some of my main goals are uncovering your strengths and helping you improve on your weaknesses.

Training For A Better Future

I’m passionate about ensuring that every child has the best start in life and that those with disabilities are included and supported. To make this a reality, I offer a range of affordable training and assistance services that are designed to help childcare practitioners, families, students, apprentices, and carers of all types improve their skills and ability to foster growth. Based in Hailsham East Sussex, I travel to homes, childminders, nurseries, pre-school playgroups, nursing, and care homes throughout the South East area.

I offer a range of training services in an understanding and compassionate manner. With a degree in Early Childhood Studies and over 30 years in childcare, I have the professional experience to provide the assistance you need. I love being able to help others learn and grow, whether it’s teaching parents to better communicate with a child with a disability, or assisting childcare practitioners in encouraging children’s learning.

Makaton can help people that have problems with verbal communication to develop a voice and be understood. This flexible, personalised system encourages using your capabilities, whatever they are, to foster clear communication. My dream is for Makaton to become a widely used, accepted form of communication. To help this become a reality, I offer Makaton training courses, workshops, and one-on-one assistance.
