Congratulations to Jane Whinnett MBE.

We are absolutely delighted that Jane Whinnett, one of the founding members of the Edinburgh Froebel Network, was awarded an MBE in the Queen’s New Year Honours List.

This award recognises Jane’s outstanding contribution to Early Childhood education in her many roles of teacher, head teacher, tutor, author and trustee of the Froebel Trust. Jane’s work has had a positive impact on thousands of children and families, not only those she has directly taught, but also through her involvement in the training of hundreds of practitioners and through the many presentations she has given. Jane’s chapter in Early Childhood Practice: Froebel Today is widely disseminated and also referenced in the Care Inspectorate publication, Our Creative Journey.

The members of the Edinburgh Froebel Network Masterclass Players & Storytellers group, raised a glass (or two) to celebrate her achievement.
