Little Years Nursery and The SEND Family | Europe
Natalie Bishop’s supportive nature and drive to make the lives of children better is leaving a mark on the people around her. One nomination said: “Natalie is a strong and influential character who is a great addition to education. She always puts others first.”
Natalie is an early childhood professional with 18 years’ experience in the sector, specialising in special educational needs and disabilities. She has helped many nurseries improve practices and outcomes for children, both as a senior manager and as an education consultant.
Natalie has four children, three of whom have additional needs. This personal experience encouraged her to start The SEND Family in 2021 to support children to access diagnosis, therapy, and family support, and funding thereof. In 2022, Natalie decided to start her own nursery group, Little Years Nursery.
