Wendy is the head at Harrington Nursery School and sits on the Derby Opportunity Area Board and the Early Years sub-group. She is passionate about early years and the importance of language and communication for children’s future life chances.
She would like the TALK Derby project to result in improved practitioner knowledge and understanding; settings developing communication friendly spaces; parents recognising the importance of talking to their children; less screen time and a raised awareness across the city.
She believes speech, language and communication are very important in their impact on future learning and life chances for all.
Wendy says: “I feel very honoured to be a TALK Derby Ambassador and to be in a position to support this extremely important initiative across the city and to spread the word in my own community and beyond.”
