Toddler Sense Wantage


Nadine McLaughlin

Hello everyone, my name is Nadine, I have been working in Early Years Education for the past 20 years & have been running Toddler Sense for the past 6 years. I am a Mum to two wonderful children who are my pride & joy. We spend our weekends largely around physical activities and getting out and about in the fresh air! I think this stems from being Cornish, although I moved to Oxfordshire 17 years ago, we still visit family regularly. My dislike is coffee, the smell alone gets me running (I've got enough energy without it!) but I am a tea lover, nothing better than a brew to warm you up-those of you that know me will know I'm always cold and you'll find me always wearning slipper in classes. I first discovered Toddler sense when attended classes with my daughter, we both were wowed by every session and I had the bug from that moment. I am so excited to be part of your journey as you and your child discover your own adventures and as you can see I completely love running classes and get so involved with making learning fun!

Josie Shumer

Hi everyone! My name is Josie and I am so excited to be joining the Toddler Sense team! I have worked in education for over a decade mainly teaching EYFS and Key Stage one children and love helping children develop and learn. I have recently become a mummy to a gorgeous little girl and so life has changed quite a lot recently! I love spending time with her and my husband going for days out and we enjoy going for walks and to the beach! One thing that really change my life was attending a Baby Sensory class with my daughter and being introduced to the wonderful world of Toddler Sense! From my first session I was hooked and can’t wait to bring our fabulous classes to more people and watch more children thrive and grow within our classes!
