Inviting Kerry to Hong Kong to advise us on Early Years practice and SEND/Inclusion was a fantastic strategic decision. Kerry was approachable and hands-on with support and she made significant and sustainable changes to our provision. She has gone beyond the call of duty and maintained contact and professional friendships.
