New courses for Summer 2014 at St Edmund’s

We are running 3 new courses during the Spring Term, for anyone working in early years, alongside a visitor day and bespoke training/consultancy. We also still have places available at the Making Inclusion Work training course on Friday 5th April.

What a Quality Environment for 2 Year Olds Looks Like (Thursday 8th May). This course focusses specifically on the needs of 2 year olds, and is ideal for any practitioner working with children aged 2 years, particularly those new to this age group.

Getting to Grips with the Early Years Foundation Stage (Tuesdays 1.00 – 3.00pm or 4.00 – 6.00pm. 3rd June, 17th June, 1st July and 15th July). The course will consist of a series of 3 workshops, followed by a hands on session in one of our nursery rooms. Each workshop will be active, practical learning that is both challenging and fun.

First Impressions – How to Improve and Maintain Outstanding Customer Service (Wednesday 18th June 4.00 – 6.00pm).This course focusses specifically on customer service in a school, nursery or children’s centre, and will include how to create a culture that makes everyone feel welcome, ensuring the needs of every parent and visitor are met, communicating effectively with parents and dealing with complaints.

Our next Visitor Day is on Wednesday 14th May 9.00 – 11.30.

We also will continue to provide Hands On Learning sessions, focussing on creative thinking, singing and movement, outdoor learning or heuristic play. Hands on learning means no sitting and listening – ideal for kinaesthetic learners, and for those who would rather be doing than watching. The training session will consist of a short introduction, followed by setting up, delivering and tidying up. There will then be chance to ask the practitioner any questions.

We can provide bespoke training and consultancy, to meet the needs of your school or staff team.
