Welcome to my website. My name is Jo Meakin (nee Baranek). 

I am an early years consultant with a specialism in maths and science. 

I have worked in the Early Years Sector for over 20 years.

For the last 11 years I have worked for the National Day Nurseries Association as their Lead Early Years Adviser.

During this time I have worked on several high profile campaigns, including Teletubbies, In the Night Garden, The Clangers, British Science Week and Healthy Body, Happy Me. 

Whilst at NDNA I spearheaded the award winning Maths Champion programme for NDNA, which underwent an evaluative longitudinal study and showed a full 2 months extra progress for children in this programme. You can read more about that here. 

I have featured at the Childcare Expo as a regular speaker and have delivered interactive workshops on a variety of topics. I am an ambasssador for Expo and you can find my blogs here. 

I now work as a freelance consultant alongside my role as a full-time PGCE student. 

I will be featured as a guest speaker on the Autumn Early Years Summit with Kathy Brodie, watch this space!
