Professional Development

Our nursery and training centre offers a range of professional development opportunities to inspire Early Years Practitioners, teachers and childminders, to develop their practise.


Our unique approach to Early Years is inspired by the Curiosity Approach, Froebel approach, as well as Forest school philosophies, and other elements of our own research. Following the work of Reggio Emilia, we believe in the '100 languages of children.'


" If a child can't learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn..."

Ignacio Estrada

We observe our children's play behaviours and learning patterns and adapt our environments in order to support the children's '100 languages.'


Our Professional Development opportunities, Mentorship and Consultancy are designed to share best practices and inspire Early Years practitioners to reflect on their learning environments and best support the children's learning.

Professional Development Days

Come and spend the day with us. We will be offering our Professional Development Days twice a year. You will have a chance to tour all of our nursery environments and find out more about our unique learning approach.

Team Visit Days


If you and your team would like to spend the day with us and experience our unique approach, then we can arrange a 'bespoke' day with you.


If you have a particular area that you are interested in, then let us know so that we can create the perfect day for you. If you would like to find out more then complete our contact form or email us:



Sarah Putland is our lead consultant and is happy to support you to develop your own setting and practice. If you would like to develop your setting or school with any elements of our approach, then we can discuss a package that meets your needs and budget. Contact us to discuss.


Delivered online and face-to-face

Working in early years can be an unpredictable one. Being in such a fast paced sector means the need for versatility and adaptability.

Sarah is currently working on an accredited leadership course, where you will work through different modules, online and at your own pace.  We are hoping that this will be available soon.  If you would like to find out more information, then please contact Sarah.
