Nikki Fairchild, Dr

Senior Lecturer at University of Portsmouth

Nikki Fairchild is a senior lecturer in early childhood and is associate head (research and innovation) in the School of Education and Sociology at the University of Portsmouth. Her teaching and research explore professionalism, leadership, pedagogy and practice in early child education and care (ECEC). Her research has been articulated in my articles on curriculum, leadership, emotional labour, gender and teacher training. It includes an ongoing project which has given her the opportunity to explore posthuman subjectivity and places/spaces in ECEC classrooms and gardens.
