Despite it being the holidays, we still found a few things going on in the world of Childcare. Remember, if you want to know when we post then you can register on the website.If you haven’t seen it yet, then you should absolutely be checking out our Top 10 Tips for an Ofsted Inspection (written by an inspector of 16 years none-the-less!). We also had a look at how we can be achieving more from our assessment in Early Years and looked at some of the changes to the operational guidance handbook. Both the stories and more can be found on our blog as usual.
With the holidays all but over, everyone here is gearing up for a busy new term. A lot of our current efforts are aimed at Childcare Expo Midlands 2017 which is happening in Coventry on the 29th and 30th of September! The event is free and we are stand C23 if you want to see us there.
In between getting all our show offers, freebies, competitions and new products ready, we have been filming ourselves too (although I’m not sure where we find the time along with all the training we do!). If you would like to take enjoyment from our embarrassment, and arguably handy tips, before we put them up on the website, then you can visit our YouTube channel and watch them today. *cringe*
We often end up talking about politics around the office, it is quite hard to avoid at the moment with Early Years policies being big business, and it even had the odd mention in Inspirational Insights. We did think that this article made interesting reading though, with studies showing that your political views can be linked to what you believe is important in education!
With exam results over and all the children heading back to school, we’ve been discussing what’s actually important in education, and not just in Early Years this time. We have to believe it’s a mixture of everything, after all that’s the most work!
