I'm Kym Scott, early childhood consultant, conference speaker and trainer
I work nationally and internationally, providing consultancy, training, workshops and keynote speeches on a number of subjects related to early childhood education and care.
I'm especially passionate about the impact that quality relationships, interactions, environments and play experiences can have on children's learning and life chances.
These elements feature heavily in my online CPD site 'The Place to Learn, where my courses and webinars can be accessed on-demand by whole staff teams or individuals for one annual fee.

"In Kym Scott, we found a consultant that matches our ambitions for the children at our school. Through close work with our leaders and teaching team, she helped us identify priorities, build confidence and knowledge in our practitioners and develop a plan for the future of EYFS that meets the needs and aspirations of our families. It is great to work with a consultant who is so passionate about what they do and so impact driven."
