An article reporting the 5 first years of a child’s life to be the most important in development was the catalyst for Louise to embark upon a career in early years.

With a good education- 10 GCSE’s grades A*/A, 3 A-levels at grade A- Louise chose a vocational route into Early Years Education at KTB Kids, joining as an apprentice preschool educator in April 2017. She then returned to University level study in September 2019 (following 2 years of a Modern Languages degree at the University of Nottingham) and studied Childhood and Youth Studies at the Open University alongside working as bank staff at KTB Kids.

Louise uses the child-centred approach at KTB Kids to ensure that the child is at the heart of their learning opportunities.

She loves her role as the facilitator, taking the thoughts and ideas of the children and creating opportunities from these that keep the children engaged and learning; all through play.

Louise has a passion for languages, is fluent in Spanish and French with conversational Portuguese, and would love to extend her travelling ambition in the future.

She has been working in her new role as Deputy Manager and Curriculum Lead since July 2020.
