Aims and Focus

Our aim is to improve children’s outcomes through evidence-based professional development for Early Years practitioners.
Our programmes focus primarily on developing early language and communication, the foundational skills which children need to become competent and capable learners and to succeed in KS1 and beyond.

Our approach can be applied to other areas. Please speak to us if you have a different focus in mind.

Core Elements

Our professional development programmes are structured around a practitioner course and / or individual mentoring to support effective implementation of the principles behind our approach. The ACTIVE INGREDIENTS are highlighted below and are covered in more depth here (click link to open the page)
