“If I take the experiences of my own childhood, coupled with what I’ve learned now from the experts in the Early years sector, I think there there’s a few things that really stand out for me. One is quality of relationships. So those moments that you spend with people that are around you. I remember that from my own childhood,” said Kate passionately. “I try to incorporate a lot of the experiences that she [Granny] gave us at the time into the experiences I give my children now,” continued Kate as she shared details of her “amazing” Granny growing up.
