About me

Hi my name is Bonnie and I am responsible for providing high quality education and care and supervising the daily programme of activities in Chatterbox Community Pre-School.

My role is to support children’s understanding and coping with their feelings, to develop high self-esteem and positive interactions with others.

I am passionate about childcare development and have a particular interest in the benefits of outdoor play.

My interest in childcare began with the birth of my two daughters. By working closely with families and outside agencies it is a joy to see children’s confidence and self-esteem grow as they make progress. I will be helping children to recognise emotions, develop their social and friendship skills. I also help to support anger management, loss and bereavement.

We are fortunate at Chatterbox to have such a wonderful outdoor environment in which children can play and learn. I enjoy working as part of a dedicated and caring team.
