    I have always had a passion for providing quality education and experiences for all children and believe that Early Years provision has a fundamental role to play in this. I am an experienced Early years teacher and EYFS leader with over 20 years teaching experience. I currently work as a part time Curriculum Consultant at Early Excellence in London, where I train practitioners and support them in establishing high quality, enabling environments in their settings. I saw your job advertisement for the Assistant Director role and after having looked at your website, I am interested to find out if there would be a suitable part time opportunity for me within your project. I have created a profile including my CV on the Early Years Alliance website. I would be really grateful to be considered for any part time positions for which you think I would be suitable. I am based in Leigh on Sea and my mobile number is 07793196624.
