We are incredibly lucky to have such a broad range of expertise within our team and the capacity to offer you exactly what you need from EYFS training.

A podcast about the proposed reforms to the Statutory Framework for the EYFS.

The Dfe launched a consultation back in October and they want your views about the proposed changes. The consultation closes on the 31st January so I thought it would be useful to talk through the key proposals to support you for when you respond to the consultation.

For more podcasts, webinars and online courses covering a range of different topics please visit our Digital Resources page, here.

On a half-termly basis, we send out a newsletter about topics relating to the EYFS.

This includes resources, podcasts, webinars blogs, important updates and upcoming courses that may be of interest to those working in Early Years.

You can view previous content on our EYFS newsletter homepage here. Or feel free to sign up, using the form below.
