Our setting is led and managed by Jane Bain who has many years experience of managing community playgroups. Jane graduated from the University of the Highlands and Islands in 2017 with a BA (Hons) in Childhood Practice. Jane has particular interest in outdoor play and learning and is passionate about its significant benefits to children. She is Forest Kindergarten trained and has also completed the advanced Forest Kindergarten Fire, Ropes and Tools course.
Jane is experienced in using Makaton as a means to aid and enhance communication. She has completed the Enhancement course in Makaton for professionals and is always working towards increasing exposure and interest to Makaton within the playgroup setting and indeed, more widely.
