Before becoming a freelance early childhood consultant and speaker, Kym was Early Years Lead in the London Borough of Lewisham. This enabled her to support many schools and settings in a variety of circumstances and to informally research the key elements that make for excellent outcomes for children. Kym now works nationally and internationally providing consultancy support in schools and nurseries, keynote speeches and training days. She is an Associate for Early Education and sits on the editorial board of Early Years Educator magazine. She is frequently praised for her clear, realistic & highly practical advice, & for the impact she makes on the practice of those she works with.
