At Maybird Training, our Early Years Educators have collaborated closely with outstanding settings across the sector to find out the all-important answer to “What makes them Outstanding?”. The following EIF workshops (within Kent) focus on frequently asked questions that will give you the tools you need to evaluate your provision and implement useful tips and simple ideas that have been tried and tested by real people in outstanding settings:

  • The quality of education (includes cultural capital)

  • Behaviour and attitudes (includes characteristics of effective learning)

  • Personal development (includes emotional literacy)

Workshops with children (£30-£50 per session)

Our DBS checked Early Years Educators also provide mini training sessions (within Kent) directly to children in early years, childminding settings, afterschool clubs and youth services including:
