With 30 years of experience in national and international teaching, leadership and consultancy roles, Janice has an extensive network of likeminded professionals that she works with to ensure that every service provided by Learning Partners involves the highest level of expertise.

As a researcher, Janice has extensive experience in Early Childhood Education and up-to-date knowledge of global developments in this field. She is passionate about creating a culture of inclusive education and believes that getting learning experiences right in early childhood is the best form of intervention.

Janice integrates neuroscience and best-practice into her work with educators. She is inspired by research from The Center on The Developing Child at Harvard University, and believes that experiences in early childhood shape the architecture of the developing brain and lay the foundation for future learning, behaviour and health.

Janice is recognised for her expertise in curriculum design and implementation.

This innovative and research-based curriculum was launched in 2016 and is now implemented in hundreds of schools and early years settings world-wide.

She is a trained accreditor for The IEYC, The International Primary Curriculum (IPC), The British Council of International Schools (COBIS), The Council of International Schools (CIS) and is an inspector for the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills (Ofsted).
