Foundation Degree Early Years (Level 5)
Working towards BA (Hons) Early Years Teaching and Learning (Level 6).
Paediatric First Aid
I am in my final year studying BA (Hons) Early Years Teaching and Learning at Kingston University. My study and five years of my working experience within the Early Years, has helped me in developing a greater knowledge of child development, pedagogy, curriculum, policies and legislation.
Most importantly, being a mother has empowered me to naturally possess caring and nurturing qualities. I believe, raising my own children has helped me in developing a passion to work and learn about children’s physical, cognitive, social and emotional development.
I have 3 children
I belong to a Pakistani Muslim family and we celebrate three major festivals in a year which are called: Ramadan, Eid ul Fitr and Eid ul Adha.
I speak Pushto, Urdu, Hindi and English

After college, in Lithuania, I worked in a nursery school for 2 years and then in a school as a teacher’s assistant supporting children with special needs. I love to meet new people and learn all about their backgrounds and culture.
