Welcome from Sandy Green
Welcome to Sandy-Green.com, a website for early years students, practitioners and parents. Sandy is an established consultant and author with over thirty years of experience in early years education and care.
Sandy offers a range of sessions and services for training and updating early years staff which can be accessed through this website. Sandy is also an experienced writer with a variety of publications, including course textbooks, tutor resource materials and practical, hands on activity books. More details can be found under Publications and can also be purchased through this website. Details of forthcoming titles and recently published books are included. For more information about forthcoming titles please feel free to join the mailing list to enable you to automatically receive updates about forthcoming releases, often in advance.
Be sure to check the website regularly as extra features including ideas, activites and recipes for children will be added from time to time (Sandy is herself Coeliac and has a specific interest in providing gluten-free meals and snacks for children). From January 2008 a monthly feature will be sent out to everyone registered on the mailing list, together with details of Sandy's new books.
Sandy initially qualified as an NNEB nursery nurse and worked in both education and social services settings before gaining a teaching qualification, B.Ed and M.Ed degrees in Early Years. Sandy entered teaching in the late 1980s, teaching early years students at level 3 (BTEC National Diploma) and at post-qualifying level (Advanced Diploma in Childcare and Education) for many years. In 2001 Sandy left full time teaching and set up Sandy-Green.com working as a consultant, trainer and writer.
Sandy is married to John. She has three children and four grandchildren. Her eldest granddaughter, Jasmine Maya, and eldest grandson, Harry Tobias, may already be familiar to some readers, as Sandy followed their development from birth through to pre-school in a monthly column in Nursery World Magazine. Jasmine's development was subsequently made into a book 'Baby and Toddler Development Made Real'.
