We specialise in developing and the delivery of bespoke and up-to-date training

We specialise in developing and the delivery of bespoke and up-to-date training for all types of early years, childcare, out of school, and children’s centre providers, and for practitioners of all levels, experiences and roles, including childminders. We have been delivering such training since 1999.

We have lots of popular and proven packages and programmes and what’s more, we are happy to discuss the development of any further sessions and are able to create or adapt training sessions tailored to meet your specific requirements.

We deliver training in full or half days, in the evening, during school holidays, on teacher training days, Saturdays and even Sundays and bank holidays.
