Following a successful international career in hotel and airline management, Jane McGregor took a complete change of direction following a short break to have children. Inspired by her second child’s nursery school in the UK, she went on to train as an Early Years’ practitioner. She has since spent 12 years working in a private school in the south of England and two schools in Switzerland. Jane joined La Côte International School in 2010 as the Foundation 1 teacher, taking on the additional role of Early Years leader the following year. She enjoys all aspects of working with young children and she has a passionate belief that, Early Years teachers have a wonderful opportunity to provide children with self-esteem, self-confidence and a love of learning.
