Paddy Beels is headteacher at Wingate Community Nursery School in County Durham. Paddy is an early years educator whose 30 years teaching spans primary and nursery children in the UK and Jamaica and work with adults in a wide range of settings. She believes strongly in the role of parents and the community in the education of young children and the potentially powerful influence that their mutual relationships with teachers can have on children’s learning. In 1999 she won the national Teaching Award for Working with Parents and the Community and was awarded the OBE in 2000.
Paddy is dedicated to “childhood” and has researched early childhood education in Denmark, Italy and Florida. She believes passionately in the importance of respecting children’s own thinking and of offering them the freedom of outdoor play and experiences, uninhibited by adult-imposed agendas.
