    New Manager

    Hello Everyone! I have just taken over as a manger in a committee run pack away preschool and would be grateful for any help! My experience is as a manager in a children's home so i'm new to running an educational setting and don't really know where to start. There doesn't seem to be any paperwork in place from the previous manager apart from a safeguarding file which have been done in recent months by our chair person and an employee file. Does anyone have any recommendations about what else is needed? Where shall I start? I like to be very organised and things to have a place to live so at the minute its riving me crazy not knowing where anything is, not being able to access things quickly when needed and trying to learn the job at the same time. Heath and Safety checks / templates would be appreciated. Team meeting minutes templates? Planning documents, Short/Long term Trackers for learning journeys Anything you think will help!! Thanks Kadie
  4. Hello all, I am writing to ask for some advice, I have been in early years for around 10 years it all began when I completed my BA Hons in early childhood studies, I then had the opportunity to complete my EYPS. In order to do this I got a job in a private day nursery, over time I worked up from a nursery practitioner to the settings early years professional overseeing the EYFS and finally the deputy manager. I felt after a few years I wanted to get back into the rooms working with children and was offered an opportunity to go to a special needs school to be their early years teacher due to holding the EYPS. I have been doing this for the last two months and straight away I felt like I was under qualified and felt like I was so out of my depth. I feel so low and every day I hate going to work, I find it so difficult going from working as a team with qualified nursery practitioners to being the only member of staff knowing the eyfs and how to support the children through planning and observing to being the only person who knows the eyfs and can extend their learning. I feel that I don't get to give the children the right support as I have such a high work load making sure all the children are making progress as their are 60 children (30 am/30pm) with 10 of these working to IEP's and EHA plans. When I have spoken to other staff members I was told I had too high expectations, is this the case or have I fallen into the wrong environment? Any support/help/guidance would be highly appreciated. Thank you from a very confused early years enthusiast!

  6. Hi, Just wondered what anyone else thought or could suggest.......I have a B.Ed (Hons), QTS, EYPS and have also worked as a freelance early years inspector for Prospects. I am thinking of starting a Masters, possibly or working freelance as a mentor/consultant? Not sure what direction to go in...comments appreciated!
  7. I mean this as exactly as it says on the tin! Does every setting need to have an EYT or is it just good practice to have one?
  8. Hi there, I am just looking for advice about a child in my setting who has just turned 3, she has been potty training for a year and at the beginning it went very well. For the past 6 months, she has been having a lot of wee accidents, around 4-5 a day but sometimes doesn't have any at all. I have introduced sticker charts and discussed with her parents the possibilities as to why she has been having accidents. Last week she mentioned to my colleague, after an accident, that she liked doing it?!?!?!??! I really do not know what to do. If anyone has any suggestions or even similarities then please do let me know! Have a lovely weekend everyone! Woooooo it's Friday!!

    Next Steps

    Hello I have been discussing with my manager and colleagues how we can ensure that each practitioner knows the next steps for the children in their room. We know what they are, however, reading up on inspections has made me realise that maybe we need to put a system in place. Can anyone share their experience from inspections and how they monitored the children's learning and what your strategies are please? Thanks
  17. Hi I work in a school and take the lead in EYFS. I had a question about what does good progress in nursery and reception look like and more importantly how can it be measured? I understand that Ofsted have stated that children should be coming in nursery aged 3 being secure within the 22-36 month band and secure within the 30-50 month band for reception. My head wants me to be able to tell him not just how much progress a child should make but how it can be measured and analysed to identify children who may be in need of additional support. This is what he is able to do for children in Key Stage 1 and 2. There is national data to support a school's analysis. There is no national data for foundation stage. I have thought about giving a point for each stage also taking into account that within each month band a child maybe emerging, developing or secure. It will also tie in with appraisal as all teachers in our school will have an objective based on attainment and progress. Just interested if anyone else is doing this. Thanks Tim
  18. I work at a private nursery in Fulham and have been searching high and low for new courses to send practitioners on but am having a lot of difficulty, I have even looked at the tri-borough courses but some do not even apply to early years! Also want to avoid overpriced courses! Thanks

    Babies (Mathematics)

    Hello I have been asked by the head of room in my baby room to receive some ideas from the following statements and learning outcomes: 1. "Notices changes in groups of up to 3" (birth-11 months) 2. "Develops an awareness of number names through enjoyment of action rhymes and songs that relate to their experience of number" (8-20 months) Thank you Sally
  20. Hello I have just been reading the 2014 Early Years Foundation Stage Profile Handbook and have been looking at information regarding creating an end of pre-school report for children transitioning to reception. Does anyone NOT do this? Thanks Sally
  21. Hello , I am looking to support the practitioners in our baby room with providing activities for babies with English as an Additional Language. Has anybody got any ideas and want to share what they do with their babies. Currently we are looking at doing atleast 1 EAL observation a month on all EAL children within our setting, however, the practitioners in the baby room are struggling, how do you think they could get this one observation. Also.....how does everyone support children with EAL in their settings? We do a number of things but I feel we could do so much more. We care for children from babies to pre-school children. Thank you Sally
  22. Hi, I'm an NQT in a Nursery/Reception/Year1 class and was recently criticised during an observation for having a pen and paper in my hand when observing Child Initiated. It was my understanding that observations should be objective and that you should write down exactly what a child says. I would find this very difficult if I did as the observer said and watch for 30 mins before writing anything down. On our busy days we have 20 EYFS children in the class and perhaps it's my lack of experience but if I were to see 20 children doing different things during the first 30mins, how would I remember everything? Also, wouldn't it widen the gap between those outgoing children who do something spectacular every lesson and command attention of all adults and those who quietly get on? Any advice welcome.
  23. Hello So our setting is made up of 3 rooms with the 3 different age ranges. I am reviewing the planning in the toddler room and pre-school room. One thing that we have had issues with is having the space to put down planning for the garden aswell as the 7 areas of learning and sand and water play. Can anyone help by sharing their planning??? Thank you :1b
  24. Hello everyone I have recently had a discussion with the head of room for the babies. We discussed how the practitioners in the baby room would like to receive more information and have some clarity on how to identify the characteristics of effective learning (CEL) for their babies. We have babies from 13 months to 23 months. If anyone could shed some light as it is obviously really important that we are identifying the correct CEL! Thank you
  25. This is my first post on here! How exciting! So, hi! I am Holly and I manage a brand new two year old setting based on a school site. We have had our first inspection and received a 'good' with some wonderful comments, so proud. But now I am ready to do MORE! I really want to revamp the outdoor provision and make it more prominent in our delivery of the EYFS. I am really looking for some tips from anyone who has accessed training, has any useful links for my own research into this, or some photos perhaps of what your outdoor environment looks like. I have a small part of a learning and development grant left and begrudge spending it on items that restrict play. I want to invest in bricks, buckets etc etc for more open ended, large scale play. Have also been debating getting chickens.. bringing some of our rural influences into our middle of town setting (we are in lincolnshire). Thanks for reading the ramble and thanks in advance for any advice. Holly
