Early Years Foundation Stage

Our Early Years teachers are highly qualified in Early Childhood Education and use internationally recognised, child-centred techniques in their implementation of IPC Early Years Programme and the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. Learning is delivered through a multi-sensory, play-based approach.

    As a somewhat reduced family (due to our eldest daughter starting university in the UK) we arrived in Doha in June 2016 and I took a position at our Rayyan Campus.  During the summer I was transferred to Gharaffa and I’m loving every minute of it!

    I have been living in Qatar for six years with my husband and teenage daughter. I have worked with children and young people for the past nineteen years both in the UK and Qatar. Most recently I have worked in two international schools in Doha delivering the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. In addition to this I have trained in assessment and verification procedures with City & Guilds in the U.K. which provided me with great insight into the variety of settings (nurseries, schools, Surestart centres), and their philosophies. This broad understanding makes me open to new ideas and professional development opportunities.

I completed my BEd degree with a specialisation in outdoor learning. My experience and interests also include behaviour support and diversity in the classroom. I have lived and taught abroad in Malta but this is my first time in the Middle East. Having assisted many schools and their eco councils, I am thrilled to be taking on the Eco Warrior ECA committee. The council and I will be promoting energy efficiency, recycling and healthy eating around our school.
