Nursery & Early Years Learning Consultant
Sabine Hook was educated at Queen’s Gate School in London before reading English Literature at the University of Durham. Upon graduating from Durham in 2005 she gained a PGCE qualification in Early Years and Primary School teaching from UCL Institute of Education (University College London).
Sabine gained first-hand experience in the British state school system, initially as a Class Teacher and then as Head of Early Years. On top of this, she also has first-hand experience of the independent school sector, having taught in a British international school as well as a prestigious inner-London nursery school.
Sabine left full-time teaching in 2012. Recognising the complexities and increasing competition for nursery school places in London, she was one of the early pioneers of nursery consultancy and has over 5 years experience working with parents as a consultant.
During her years teaching Sabine gained a detailed knowledge and understanding of how young children learn and what essential qualities create a successful nursery school. She has developed her own unique assessments for children aged 2-6 years old based on her own knowledge of developmental goals and the expectations of the most competitive pre-preps and schools.
