"As a school we began working with Kym in 2017. Her perfect mix of hard work, an eagle eye and amazing sense of humour was just what we needed. Two teaching and environment audits and two training courses later, and a lot of hard work by staff- the EYs is a different place. Thank you Kym for all of the help and support in transforming the very beginnings of the education journey for our children’".

Kym has opened our minds to a whole new way of leading learning. She really challenged us and moved our practice on, but did it all in a way that left us feeling empowered, informed and enlightened. If you want to improve significantly the quality of teaching and learning in your setting, then you need look no further’

"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.

"We first met Kym when she spoke at an EY conference. She was inspirational. We decided there and then that her vision for EY practice was exactly what we were looking for to raise standards in our school. Kym has now visited our school on several occasions and has successfully inspired and motivated teachers and LSAs. The shift in practice and improvement in outcomes for our children was almost immediate. Her approach is utterly supportive and she gets results by creating a challenging but safe climate for improving practice. Kym is a generous mentor with a wealth of experience and understands just how young children learn."

"Firstly, I love Kym's engaging and enthusiastic tone and manner. She immediately gained my attention, which is something I struggle with when learning online. Her passion is displayed throughout the clips, which gets me, as an adult, excited to learn!

The real life examples are incredibly helpful as I can implement them into my own practice rather than having to think 'how can I make this work for me?'

The information given is current and well researched. The guest appearances and research shared from others are amazing as Kym's statements are immediately backed up by other reliable sources."

I have really valued Kym’s advice and support in developing our Early Years Foundation Stage. She is so knowledgeable and has gained the respect of the whole team and has empowered them to make significant changes to our environment and practice. With Kym’s input we have improved the quality of our Early Years provision from being judged as Requires Improvement by Ofsted to being praised by HMI within a 6 month period. I would recommend Kym to any Early Years setting as she is fantastic to work with.

“This is the most enjoyable online training I have done. Kym delivers the course in a very engaging way and the content itself is so interesting. I am enjoying all of the different modules and can already feel how this learning has impacted my practice and built on my skills.”

"Our team LOVE the training and how accessible it is with less jargon and more real examples (English is a second language for most of them).

Most of all they love your personality and how you are so real and down to earth!  You really should be very proud of the work you have put into this.  It is almost as if you were in the room with us!"
