As part of our commitment to the development of our entire workforce, we hold four training days every year which cover a variety of courses, developing skills, knowledge, confidence, and up-to-date changes within the Early Years Sector. We are a learning organisation that is at the forefront of improving the quality of our childcare practice, through regular training and development of our teams, and this week is no exception! We have had a great response to this years Summer training where our teams have participated in courses on:

  • EYFS reforms (Development Matters, Birth – Five)
  • Building the blocks for attachment and learning through play (what babies need you to know)
  • Leaping into Language
  • Acorn's Employee Induction
  • Early Years Nutrition
  • Paediatric First Aid
  • Basic Safeguarding Awareness
  • Team Building and Communication
  • Developing Leadership Skills

We continually seek to develop the knowledge, skills and qualifications of our teams which is why we close all of our settings for these training days, to ensure every team member can participate without having to take time out of their evenings and weekends.
