She is a superhero. She’s great at getting the children involved in collaborative play together, engaging and scooping them all up into games and play.
Sally is such a calm, kind and caring person. She is the glue that sticks us all together as a team. She is outstanding with all children and is particularly adept at supporting new two year olds. The children adore her.

An interesting fact about Sally:
I was once offered a place in the British National Kendo Squad!
What does Sally love about working at Dandelion?
I love working with young children. They are amazing beings, bursting with curiosity and humour, with an unconscious thirst for learning and investigating the world around them. They fill me with joy, laughter and wonder. I am thrilled to be joining the Dandelion team in this unique Forest School/Philosophy led environment. This is a place where children can learn so much by investigating or by being in the moment. By challenging themselves or others whilst swapping ideas, all the while being guided by a team who care about each and every individual. In my spare time I enjoy rowing for pleasure and competitively, cycling with my family, reading, and needle crafts. I enjoy growing things in my vegetable garden and am looking forward to trying out some new crop varieties in the coming years.
Hip-hip-hooray for Sally!
