About our training

From Nursery keyworkers to Pre-school managers, Child Minders to SENCo’s, all staff play an important role in the day to day running of an Early Years setting. In order to ensure that both your staff – and the young minds you care for – feel comfortable and confident in your environment, we have singled out a few childcare training courses that will be of great benefit to your colleagues and, as a result, everyone who walks through your door.

Our Safeguarding of Children and Risk Assessment in a Childcare Setting are assisting front-line staff to constantly review the needs of children in their care, whilst our Autistic Spectrum Disorder and ADHD Awareness courses allow staff to assess and care for individuals with specific needs. We also cover the basics such as Infection Control for Early Years and Paediatric First Aid, to ensure the most fundamental needs are met. Whatever the course or requirement, we welcome the chance to discuss your training needs and to work with you to ensure that your staff benefit from the best training available.
