Ciara Barbour-Philips

“I am currently completing my Early Years Initial Teacher Training with Seymour House Nursery. Before this, I completed my degree studying Education and Childhood Studies at Anglia Ruskin University, Chelmsford.

My interest in working with young children stemmed from my work within primary school reception classes as an assistant, placements throughout university and abroad and my academic work and research in psychology within children’s developmental stages.

When I was offered the opportunity to work at Seymour House and gain Early Years Teacher Status I knew this was best suited for me as a graduate as I am able to use my experiences from my degree and schools to help children not only learn but also develop at young ages. I love being part of children’s progress within learning who all have diverse and individual needs through creative activities and play.”
