Welcome to my events section which is open to all

Early Years Professionals.

The EYFS (2017) and Ofsted regard staff training as an important part of your service. Continuous Professional Development (CPD) is essential for staff to continually reflect and improve the quality of the learning and development opportunities provided for the children in their care. Staff need to be kept motivated and inspired to learn new skills, strategies, knowledge and practice. Using my experience and know-how, I offer small, friendly workshops to enable you to get the most out of the training. Thus, improving your practice and outcomes for children.

Early Years is an ever-evolving sector and we must keep abreast on current theories and developments if we are to provide high quality childcare. I aim for your ‘intent’ to provide a high quality curriculum to be accomplished; for staff to understand the subject matter fully so they are able to ‘implement’ it effectively; for my training to have ‘impact’ upon staff practice and children’s development.

I can deliver in-house training to settings at your venue. This not only gives a whole team experience where they can develop enthusiasm and support each other when implementing something new, but reduces the cost for you as a setting as there is not a venue fee.

I offer training to networks of Childminders in your area of Essex. Gather together your colleagues and make it a group event.

Whatever your need or interest, I understand how settings differ and can tailor training to your requirements, so contact me with any queries.
