Lorraine Woods


I have a Level 6 in Montessori from Portabello. 

A Little Bit About Me:

I have 15 years experience in the early years sector in both Ireland and Australia. Everyday is a new adventure working in the early years and it's always interesting to see where the children's learning will take them. I enjoy planning, preparing and setting up environments and watching children explore and learn. For me it's a pleasure being a part of their journey.
