Meet your Presenter – Catherine Lyon

Catherine has been involved in Early Years and education for over 40 years; as a student, practitioner, team leader, trainer, assessor, manager, business owner of nurseries (‘outstanding’ and award-winning) and a small training company ‘registered’ with Cache. I have been an ex-RgNI (with Ofsted) and a Quality Assurance Assessor (with the National Day Nurseries Association).
In her current roles, she often also acts as an advisor/coach/consultant in the UK and internationally, particularly in China and India.

FACILITATING PRACTICALITIES – Catherine understands situations from all perspectives-child, staff, parents, teams, management and also the necessity of how to make it all possible through successful systems for a thriving business. She is passionate and strives for high-quality early years education, where the child is at the centre of practice and there is an emphasis to “get it right”.
