I am Mrs Hearth and I am joining the Nursery team for the summer term this year, after taking some time off for maternity leave. If you have older children you might recognise me from Year 1 in previous years! As well as being a teacher in Nursery I am also the Science Subject leader, which is a subject close to my heart. I qualified as a teacher a long time ago at the Institute of Education and afterwards gained a Postgraduate Diploma in Science Education. More recently I have gained an MSc with Distinction from the University of Southampton in Education Policy and Practice and I love using all I have learnt about excellent teaching and learning in the real world at Cardinal Road.
When I’m not teaching I enjoy hiking with my husband and my dog, and now with our baby. The holidays can usually find us walking around a hilly part of the country, while at the weekends we love to go exploring London.
The Nursery is a wonderful place with fantastically creative children at the heart of the learning. It is a extremely supportive and enriching environment and the children are a delight to spend the day with. The progress the children are making is astonishing and we are so proud of all they are achieving.
I look forward to seeing you as the term progresses!
