Understanding the EYFS reforms, the associated documentation and  implications for practice


 8 information-packed recorded webinars

20 exceptional speakers

All you need to know about implementing the revised EYFS in a developmentally appropriate way


  • Do you want to feel ready for implementing the new EYFS framework?

  • Do you need an honest, no-nonsense overview of the changes?

  • Would you like to think more deeply about current practice as you move forward into using the new framework? 





These webinars have been developed to support you in interpreting and implementing the new framework. You can attend live or purchase a recording of the live event.

Session One gives an overview of the key changes and the following sessions give you the chance to dig deeper and reflect upon your own practice in key areas relating to the new framework. Be prepared to have your thinking well and truly provoked! 

The programme has been carefully curated to provide a wide range of expertise from those working directly in schools and early years settings, as well as highly esteemed national voices. All have one shared passion – a drive to ensure that young children experience the highest quality early education and care from knowledgeable and confident adults.

A wonderfully thought provoking discussion!

A reminder that we need to get into that uncomfortable place to be able to bring about real change. The discussion about interpersonal and systemic racism prompted me to think about how interpersonal racism is few and far between in my international school setting, however the systemic racism still is present and got me thinking about how that presents for my children and colleagues and what I can do to help change things.

'Whose world?" is another key take away for me - a fantastic reminder (not that we need one really!) that child-led learning is the way forward for so many reasons!

The power of talk for allowing children to unpack their 'invisible backpack'... YES!
