Our CPD & INSET for EYFS Nursery Schools

EYFS Nursery practitioners are key to the delivery of high quality childcare. Developing your staff and keeping them motivated ensures that they enhance vocabulary, build curiosity and engage children with delight and enthusiasm.

“Children need an inspirational environment that changes and includes quirky objects and things that lie outside the ordinary. They need to hear words that are strange and alluring, hear stories that open up new worlds of imagination and wonder; they need drama and songs, adventure and the great outdoors. These are what you can bring every single day. Think like a child to be like a child.”

Greg Bottrill , Author of ‘Can I Go and Play Now?: Rethinking the Early Years’

New ‘Development Matters’ for 2021

The first draft of the new Development Matters will be shared with a number of people across the sector over the Spring, with publication due in Summer. It is designed to reduce practitioner workload, reduce the disadvantage gap, and reflect the shift in research and evidence since the last document was published.

A framework like Development Matters is there as a guide, not replace a practitioner’s professional knowledge and experience.

High-quality CPD in the early years is so important.

Dr Julian Grenier , Lead on Development Matters & Head of Sheringham Nursery School

CPD: Investing in the future

Developing a learning culture requires a shared vision, enabling processes and structures, empowering managers to develop a motivated workforce, to encourage and sustain learning.

Even in the challenging circumstances that schools and nurseries are facing, to cut CPD spending would be one of the most counterproductive, short sighted and evidence-averse things a school could do.

High Quality Affordable CPD for Nursery Schools

So if you help decide what CPD the teachers at your school or nursery have access to, remember that, if done right, its benefits are wider reaching than we might first assume. JMC with its experienced EYFS trainers and practitioners is well placed to assist your Nursery with the professional development of your staff.

INSET : Embedding a Growth Mindset into your Classroom and School

‘Mindsets’, the simple but compelling idea put forward by Carol Dweck of Stanford University, has taken the US educational system by storm and challenged the way our Stateside colleagues view learning, talent and ability. Teachers and school leaders have found the approaches and practical tips suggested by mindsets theory have had a clear impact on the performance of learners in their classrooms.
