Mary Richards

Early Years Teacher/Strategic Leader

I am an Early Years Teacher and have been involved with this age group of children for over 20 years - both running my own setting and running training to help other professionals be the best they can be in their field.

I first came across Munchkins Day Nursery when I met owner Graham Bryant when he was studying for his Early Years Teacher qualification - I was his Tutor and Mentor. I have been actively involved with the setting since January 2016, offering support and training to staff in areas such as Behaviour Management, Early Literacy and Mathematical activities and various Special Educational needs.

I am passionate about effective interactions between staff and children and having spent time in Denmark learning about their early years offer, I am also a great advocate of outside learning.
