Working Parents

I am pleased to be the expert guest on ‘Women Like Us’, the multi-award-winning social enterprise that provides career advice and support to women and works to build a better future for working parents.

Please feel free to share this link with your parents if they have any questions on work life balance, childcare issues and looking for a school, etc.

I look forward to hearing from your parents.

Best wishes

Laura

Sue Gascoyne is an educational consultant, early years researcher, trainer and author. She runs workshops and speaks nationally and internationally, drawing upon the research which she has instigated to further understanding of the benefits of sensory-rich object play. This is also reflected in her award winning training – Sue was named Nursery World’s ‘Trainer of the Year’ in 2009 for her contribution to the early years sector. Her accomplished books, Sensory Play, 2011 (Practical Pre-School) and Treasure Baskets and Beyond – Realising the benefits of sensory rich play, 2012 (Open University Press) successfully convey both the theory and practical application of sensory play. Sue is the founder of Play to Z Ltd, specialist providers of award-winning sensory […]
