Nicola is the creator of 'The Story Stem' and our event facilitator. She has been an established early years practitioner since 2012 when she began her journey by training with early years consultant and actress Carla Henry, creator of ‘Drama 4 Tots’. Under this umbrella she has delivered community and outreach projects with Manchester Museum, The Lowry and Z-Arts and has performed at the Royal Exchange Theatre and Just So children’s festival. Nicola is a professional musician and has worked with 'Little Groovers' since 2015, delivering interactive music sessions around Manchester.
She spends most of her days singing silly songs and creating supportive and comfortable environments within which she can inspire children’s imaginations and their love for learning through story and music. Nicola’s extensive practice within the early years field, her passion for working with young children and their grown-ups, and her eagerness to create a magical and engaging experience has inspired 'The Story Stem' - a new and exciting project for 2019.
