Emma Hopkinson

Senior Placement Specialist

Emma was born in Northamptonshire in the UK and after finishing her schooling, she attended the world-renowned Norland College for two years, obtaining her NNEB. Emma then moved to London working as a nanny in a private home, and after completing her final year of training in her probationary post, she received her Norland Diploma. Emma then went on to nanny for other families, and during this time she helped guide the parents with her knowledge and expertise, as well as accompany them when travelling to Europe and the US.

It was when her own family made the move to Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates in 2010, that she decided to work as an Early Years teacher in a nursery, further building on her knowledge and understanding of different curriculums and the needs of both the children and parents over the following 13 years.

Emma enjoys spending much of her time with her family, and travelling, where she has been lucky enough to visit some wonderful countries.
