Regional Offer

Our Regional Offer, which can be accessed by all childminders in our 8 Local Authorities, will include training and input from inspirational speakers or information sharing around relevant themes. It’s a fabulous opportunity to connect together and consider big-picture thinking.

Local Offer

Our Local networks are a fantastic opportunity for those working with 2-year-olds to come together to share ideas, see other settings provision and reflect upon barriers to high quality practice. We aim for the offer to be bespoke and responsive to the unique needs of the area.

Local offer may include:

  • Establishing new face-to-face groups
  • Supporting existing groups with planning, resources, and identifying a learning focus
  • Inviting guest speakers or arranging support for groups
  • Training sessions

We invite further suggestions for how we can meet the needs of each locality.
