Areas of expertise

Julia’s career in the early childhood field has included roles as a practitioner (nursery nurse), manager, adviser and inspector across a range of settings for children aged 0-7 years and also as a senior lecturer in Early Childhood Studies. She is able to deliver training across all aspects of early childhood; tailored to your setting’s needs.

For much of her career, Julia’s particular interest and passion has been to support the development of effective practice and provision that meets the needs of children from birth to three years old; she has extensive experience and expertise in running courses in this area. In 2001 Julia produced the Key Times Framework (published by OUP in 2006) and was part of the Birth to Three Matters Project Group in 2002. Her most recent book in this area is Manning-Morton, J and Thorp, M. (2015) Two-year-olds in early years settings: Journeys of Discovery. Maidenhead: Open University Press.

Julia’s research and writing is also focused on the personal, social and emotional well-being of children and practitioners. She has trained in group dynamics and interpersonal skills and is particularly interested in working with leaders in supporting teams to meet the emotional needs of babies and young children.

Julia’s training approach is collaborative, inclusive, respectful and serious fun!
