Hello! I'm Vicki, a Child Development and Early Years Expert with over 10 years’ experience of teaching, leadership and governance. I founded Primary Steps, during my maternity leave, when I realised just how little decent help, support and information there is out there for parents. Having worked as a Lead Early Years Practitioner, offering support and advice to staff working in Early Years settings, I decided to transfer my skills to helping parents. Through Primary Steps I now help parents of 2-6 year olds to use playful and developmentally appropriate techniques to build strong foundations for the future. Alongside Primary Steps, I continue to lead an Award Winning and OFSTED rated 'Outstanding' Early Years department which I established in 2016.
