Early Years Consultancy case studies Early Years Consultancy case study offerton farmEarly Years Consultancy case study: Simple, sustainable solutions

Offerton Farm - early years case studies MBK Training Case StudiesOfferton Farm Nursery sought MBK Training’s advice and support in reviewing its fee structure, having reached a point where it was unsustainable to continue to offer its funded hours.

Further to meeting with the nursery and reviewing the relevant information and contracts, MBK Training was able to develop documents to support recommendations due for discussion at a consultancy meeting.

A productive meeting ensued, with re-structuring solutions being offered, as well as implementation strategies that could be achieved on a practical level by talking and working with the nursery management software company to ensure it was achievable.

The recommendations were taken on board and MBK supplied bespoke and template documents to allow the new system to be implemented. In fact, it took just a couple of additional phone calls to ensure the successful implementation of the new system, which will now ensure the nursery can continue to offer funded hours on a sustainable basis.

Sarah Weston, owner of Offerton Farm Nursery said “THANK YOU! it is all much clearer to us. I think we all feel quite comfortable with this (new) system. It’s a great relief to be getting this sorted.”

Little Blossoms - early years case studies MBK Training Case StudiesLittle Blossoms Nursery required MBK Training’s support in clarifying the new EYFS framework to ensure it was compliant.

The nursery had undergone staff changes in its After School club and with its manager recently returned from maternity leave and a new EYFS framework in place, it felt there were some grey areas about expectations.

MBK conducted a site visit to observe practice and undertake a mini-audit of the After School Club’s paperwork, from administration to planning., before generating a Visit Report with a set of recommendations and an Improvement Action Plan, which included a list of actions for the nursery to implement and a further consultancy visit, as well as advice on policy updates and new policy requirements and access to useful resources

After progressing with the full consultancy recommendation, a meeting was held with the manager and club team, whereupon a new planning system was discussed and introduced to ensure the EYFS requirements were met, along with new policies and procedures requirements including the provision of policy templates.

MBK was then able to monitor the nursery’s progress and advise on how it would take the other recommendations forward within the facility.

Jane Clive, Owner of Little Blossoms said “We are now feeling much better in After school, as we have just about all the correct paperwork in place that we worked on, so thank you very much”
