Alice Sharp – Early Years Consultant, Author and Trainer
Alice is an award-winning teacher, trainer, author and entrepreneur!
As I look back at those early steps into adult life; first as an undecided Civil Servant, then as a determined teacher and finally that giant whole-hearted step into the world of early childhood, I feel real gratitude that I found my way into this world of infinite possibility.
The driving force behind everything that I have done and continue to do is the overwhelming desire to make a positive difference on the lives of practitioners and the children in their care. What we do matters; every minute of every day!
