Di Chilvers is an advisory consultant in early childhood education having worked in the early year’s sector for over 40 years as a Nursery Nurse, Teacher, Senior Lecturer, Adviser and National Strategies Regional Adviser. Di’s work focuses on children’s creative and critical thinking and following children’s interests, ideas and fascinations through observing children, understanding their development and HOW they learn, listening to their conversational talk and trying to understand their thinking.
