Little boy shouting
As a professional you know that evidence shows high quality provision during the foundation years has a lasting impact on children’s future learning and life chances. Quality provision in early education and childcare is secured through a workforce which is confident in:


  • Working together
  • Engaging with mums, dads and families
  • Delivering high quality practice and services that make a difference on a daily basis.

    I am lucky to employ a qualified Teacher who has a Quality Role within our Nursery. She spends a morning or full day in every room working alongside the staff mentoring and supporting them to ensure that the children throughout the Nursery recieve the best possible care.

      I am a commited qualified teacher covering the same role in a Children's centre with a nursery provision but I understand that my post might be cut due to lack of funds. I am that superfluous?

        This is the problem the government keep going on about wanting highly qualified staff in EY childcare facilities. Only they don't want to pay the appropriate salary. Most daycare settings would also be unable to fund a post grad or teacher unless the Goverment intend to act by putting funding in place. I have had staff that have completed a degree and then moved on because the salary is not there at the EY setting after all thier had work. They have also been committed as we all are in childcare, but sometimes we have to think about our own needs and family commitments. Good luck to your future

    Wht age is chid care free and what age does a child have,to be,to get nursery vouchers,
    • Hi Cassie - every 3 and 4 year old gets 15 hours free childcare per week at the moment, and this will soon be expanded to include the most disadvantaged 2-year-olds, first 20% of them from next year, and then 40% of them from 2014.

    this is a great opportunity for all of us to share our thread of thinking to gather new ideas and giving feedback of our success and obstacles.

    this is a great way for all of us to share our thread of thinking and gathering new ideas to be implemented within the setting.

    Hi with today's announcement regarding 2yr old funding is it envisaged that places will be needed from the maintained nursery sector to accommodate this?

    where i understand the need to aid the parent pay for their child attending a nursery setting i am angry at the fact if you wish to offer more ie a music teacher ,you can not ask the parent for any money for this extra ,surly if a parents wishes to attend a setting and wants to come because of these extras and wishes to pay they have a right too In todays education our parents have a variety of choses ,so why not in early years NO SAYS THE HAMPSHIRE ,we must all be the same if we wish to take the grant

    Hi I'm a qualified nursery nurse but for the last 8 years have been working with teenagers mostly teenage parents and young offenders. I now have 2 small children a two and a half year old, and a four month old. I am now thinking of coming back to younger child care when my son is a little older. I'm qualified to NVQ level 4 and I am a qualified trainer and NVQ assessor. I am hoping to find a pre-school so I can be term time only. My question is how are you finding all the changes are they better? I also wonder what is the pay like now it was pretty dismal but I'm hoping in 8 years it would have improved ? Many thanks Joylindsey
