This workshop will consider the new cohort of children who are due to start at our schools in September 2022 and it will look at what is recommended before school to help get off to a strong start in Reception.
You will be able to consider the essential building blocks in nursery and pre-school and how to work with different practitioners, including child minders to ensure success for every child.
This workshop will also discuss how to get parents on board early and key messages to share.
This workshop is relevant for pre school and nursery staff as well as EYFS colleagues, EYFS leads, reading leaders and school leaders.
