Kate Moxley


I am a consultant and trainer based in the West Midlands and I have worked within the Early Years sector for over two decades, combining a BA (HONS) in Early Childhood Studies with real-life hands-on experience of working with children and families in educational and PVI settings, leading and managing large staff teams.

I am an approved Mental Health First Aid England Instructor and specialise in wellbeing and mental health training, workplace support and working with staff teams to think positively about their health and wellbeing by working together to create mentally healthy nurturing environments.

I pride myself on my own unique approach and share personal experiences of my hands on, real life, relatable practice as an EY practitioner. I strive to advocate and raise awareness, training and education on mental health and mental health issues for the wellbeing of all staff, children and families.

I believe I represent the early years as a true example of someone who has a demonstrated history, enthusiasm and love for my profession in early years and childcare.
