Early Years Training

Early Years delivers a wide range of in-service programmes that continue our drive to improve practice by applying an appropriate play based curriculum. Our training is for parents, all adults working with young children in pre-school settings, daycares, SureStart, nursery and foundation stage and management committees.

All of our training helps develop the confidence and competence of the participants in the understanding of play and the needs of young children across the statutory, voluntary and independent sectors. Training programmes and materials are reviewed annually and are based on evidence from research and best practice to deliver outcomes for young children.
