About me

Hello! My name is Zoe and I joined Chatterbox as a practitioner in September 2022. I am also the Health and Welfare Officer.

All my own children attended Chatterbox and as a parent I loved it so much I am so excited to have joined the team! 

  • 2022 – Joined Chatterbox
  • Level 3 in Children’s Workforce (Early Years Eductor)
  • Qualified Teacher Status
  • Paediatric First Aid Training
  • Safeguarding Training

I have always worked with children, but my passion is working within the Early Years, contributing towards and facilitating the foundation of children’s development. I always have high expectations of children, not only in terms of things like their behaviour and independence in areas such as self care, but also strive to help children become inquisitive in their play and promote confidence in all they can achieve in all areas of their own unique development.

Before I joined Chatterbox I was an Early Years Childminder for 5 years. I also ran a local weekly playgroup for parents and children up to age 5. Prior to this I was a Secondary School Teacher and Head of Year for 9 years. I am also a very busy mummy to 3 lovely children. In all these roles my main aim has been to help children enjoy and flourish in their childhoods focusing on the specific needs and interests of each and every child.
