Anne Cummins, who founded Mayet Consulting in 2013, has worked in Early Years education across the public, private and voluntary sectors for over 25 years.
This includes 12 years at Staffordshire County Council, where she worked as Head of Early Years and Childcare Services, and later as County Manager for Children’s Centre Services.
She founded Mayet Consulting to develop and share the many ways in which adults working with young children can deliver excellent early years services in their local communities.
Anne is also an Associate Consultant with A+ Education, which focuses on raising quality in the early years.
“I am endlessly fascinated by children; how they develop and how the experiences they encounter shape their future outcomes. I believe that by nurturing dispositions for learning – using children’s natural curiosity, and fully engaging with parents as genuine parteners – all children can achieve wonderful things.”
— Anne Cummins, Director
“Anne is an inspirational colleague and an efficient organiser who has lots of ideas and gets things done. She also listens to others, keeps up to date with research and is fun to work with.”
