My name is Cathy James and I’m the creator of the NurtureStore website. I live in the UK with my husband and two children, and I am very happy to welcome you here and to share with you NurtureStore’s child-centred, play-based, arts-focused way of living and learning.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree and have over twenty-five years experience working in education. This includes a wide variety of settings and age groups:
:: from babies, toddlers and preschoolers where OFSTED rated my provision as Outstanding
:: through the school ages, in school and through home education where I ran children’s gardening clubs, tween and teen book clubs, and art workshops
:: to adult learners, designing and delivering training programs for the UK Civil Service
The unique insights gained from this diverse educational experience help me understand the challenges YOU face in your setting and mean the resources I make for NurtureStore work well, wherever you are.
NurtureStore is about sharing ideas that are ‘do-able’, not things that are complicated, unrealistic or time-consuming, so enjoy our ideas that are simple, effective, and that you can actually, really do with your children, with great results.
