Harriet Walsh – Bright Start Beaminster

I am a fully qualified Early Years Teacher with over 12 years’ experience in childcare and education. My experience ranges from 5 years working as a Reception and Y1 Teacher, working as a nanny and primary tutor. Just round the corner from St Mary’s Academy, my home benefits from a large enclosed garden and 24ft garden cabin dedicated to my childminding. The cabin is well equipped for learning through play with a variety of age-appropriate toys and resources. I have a variety of outdoor equipment including a slide and mud-kitchen. My home is minutes from beautiful footpaths, woodland and 5 minutes walk from a well-equipped children’s playground. A passionate and dedicated Early Years Provider, I pride myself in providing quality care and thoroughly enjoy helping young children reach their milestones. I understand that children learn best when they are having fun and feel safe in a warm and welcoming environment.
