Show Notes

Joining me are Rachel and Kim from The Homestead Nursery, a reggio inspired, outdoor loving setting in beautiful Wales. Theirs is an inspirational journey! From buying an established nursery to turning it into something incredibly special. These women hold research-informed practice dear to the hearts. They have set about opening The Homestead, coming from their roles as Early Years Teacher, and Midwife and Health Visitor. I think this makes for a really wonderfully unique setting for young children, with a firm foundation in knowledge of child development.
