In other news, the funding formula debacle keeps rolling on and leaving us both confused and concerned for the future. No doubt it will be fine, but it would be nice if we actually received support without having to fight for it all the time!
This month we have been mostly spending our time being busy, incredibly busy. But we did get a chance to expanded the team a little bit – more on that next month!
Our main source of entertainment this last couple of weeks has come from a special piece of consultancy work we are working on that involves filming the staff at work in the nursery!
So far we have made it through the (very much expected) dissenting murmurs, the hours of night time footage, monotonous hovering and the close ups of children’s faces as they investigate the camera.
Next up we will be using the footage to look at missed opportunities in the children’s learning (particular focusing on science investigations!) and managing behaviour more effectively… or maybe we will just be giggling at people getting caught picking their nose once they forgot about the camera – children and practitioners equally as guilty of that one!
