It is becoming more and more difficult, in the ever changing landscape that is Early Years, to ensure that you remain at the top of the game in meeting the requirements of the EYFS and the ever increasing demands of Ofsted at inspection time.
In addition to that, you need all the skills to run a business, a staff team and be an excellent practitioner with the children. Sometimes this can be overwhelming, we know as we’ve been doing it ourselves for the last 17 years! Occasionally it would just be nice to have someone to call on, to be a sounding board or to offer some practical help. That’s where our Early Years Consultancy can be of help to you. No job too small (or large) as the saying goes.
Consulting in Early Years
Our credentials speak for themselves, we have built a business from one nursery to a group of five with six out of school clubs. During this time our ethos has been one of high quality care and education with an emphasis on developing our staff teams to their full potential. We created the MBK Training brand to support the Continued Professional Development of our staff and now offer these early years consulting services to others, including childminders and all settings delivering the EYFS.
Ofsted Inspections have become more rigorous since the new Evaluation Schedule and are set to continue to be so with the new Common Inspection Framework starting in September 2015. Your teams are key to this success and their ongoing development must be maintained at every level, including preparing them for what is to come and, as experienced consultants, we will help you and them with that preparation. By building a long-term relationship with providers we can become an additional resource, a place to come to support achieving the best possible outcomes for your setting and each individual child.
