Hi, I’m Wendy and I run The Sidlaw Hare. Here is a little bit about my background. I qualified with a Childcare Diploma NNEB 29 years ago. I have worked in many different sectors in Childcare throughout the UK and abroad. I have worked as a nanny, a nursery nurse in various types of settings, a team leader in a Prep school, a Manager of both a Family Centre in Central London and a Bilingual Nursery in North London. In addition, I was employed as a peripatetic English Instructor in Okinawa, Japan.
I furthered my knowledge of Childcare, Early Years and Education through achieving a BA Hons in Early Childhood Studies at Roehampton University, London and I obtained Early Years Professional Status.
It was when I was working as an English instructor on the beautiful island of Okinawa that I first encountered Kamishibai. The literal translation is paper theatre. I am embarking on a journey to bring the paper theatre of Japan to a nursery near you.

The Sidlaw Hare is owned and run by Wendy Duncan.
