Consultancy Services

Through discussions and observing practice, we can quickly identify where there are gaps in the quality of care and education and agree on a support strategy to meet your specific needs.

Early Years Consultancy Services

We believe that to support you to achieve your objectives, we need to build a close and mutual relationship. In our experience, most settings benefit from a multi-day contract with packages including a combination of quality improvement audits, regular monitoring visits and staff training. This approach allows us to work together to plan and drive improvement.
Therefore, we have devised a range of packages to suit all.

This includes a range of services as follows:

Quality Improvement  Audits (our number one selling package

These are primarily beneficial in ensuring that settings are consistently maintaining high quality practice. The consultant will spend approximately 6 hours in the setting (time varies depending on
size of setting). During the visit she will observe the interactions between the staff and children. She will also ask question on how they plan and deliver activities to support children’s development. The consultant will use her knowledge as a qualified safeguarding instructor to check that staff have a clear understanding of how to identify children who may be at risk of harm and the correct procedures to follow.

Following the inspection, the consultant will provide verbal feedback to managers/leaders with suggestions for improvement. A comprehensive quality improvement plan is also available.

Self-Evaluation Guidance

Self-evaluation plays an important role in any early years setting and helps managers to identify the strengths and areas of development within the provision. However, reflecting on your own practice can be
difficult. Let us take the pressure off. We will visit your setting, meet with staff, and collaboratively pinpoint what needs to improve. We will use this information to offer advice and support and help your plans come to fruition, through quality improvement plans.

Coaching and Mentoring advice 
Do you have a short-term specific need or require regular mentoring sessions? Whatever your needs are, we are here to offer advice and share our knowledge and experience, to help you to develop your skills and strive for success.

These allow us to work closely with leaders to observe practice and identify where positive changes could be made. We can then work together and offer practical advice, guidance, and support to improve practice.

“Ingrid worked as a consultant at the nursery I'm based in, she provided insightful, useful & up to date training on all the key issues a nursery practitioner should know. Her training sessions were thorough & kept you engaged throughout. I feel very privileged to have had her support, guidance and advice on many occasions. She's a wonderful teacher and I've learnt a lot from her in covering many aspects of childcare.”
