Moonstone started in my heart over 30 years ago as a young girl.
I grew up in a house filled with teachers, my mother and 4 of my 8 brothers. I saw how much they loved what they did and the positive impact they had on those around them. It is not surprising that my aim in life was to teach.
After university, I started my teacher training in schools but soon realised I did not like it as much. I spent too much of my time resolving children’s issues (whether educational or behavioural) which I felt ought to have been dealt with at a younger age. This is what motivated me to work in Early Years.
I did many things, which I loved. But whatever I did I felt that I was not following my passion or having the positive impact that I would have liked.
So in 2013 I decided to do something about it: I started my training as an Early Years Practitioner and began working as a childminder. Everything started coming together from this point onwards. After eighteen months of hard work and with the help of my amazing team Moonstone Day Care moved in to our Erdington premises. Our Wolverhampton site opened twelve months after that.
