Early Years Training

Early Years Training

Welcome to Jenny Mosley’s Early Years Training and consultancy. We run Early Years Training and conferences for many different types of settings from nurseries, Children’s Centres, pre-schools and for larger groups and affiliations of Early Years practitioners. Positive behaviour, circle time and honing early communication skills have been a particular focus for Jenny Mosley, along with social skills and early years games and activities.

“I just wanted to send an e-mail saying how fantastic my staff found your course last night. All of them said how motivated they felt and they left buzzing rather than worn out which happens during other courses they have attended. Thank you.” Amanda Park, Nursery manager  Here We Grow (The College Merthyr Tydfil)

Early Years Training And EYPP

Some settings have found that they can use EYPP (Early Years Pupil Premium) to fund Jenny Mosley’s training. The model Jenny uses helps to build social skills and confidence, which can be most marked and most beneficial in the children needing the boost most. Staff find it very inspiring to watch Jenny working with young children. Here is what one Infant School Deputy Headteacher wrote:

“Jenny’s live demonstration was an absolute “masterclass” of how to engage very young children, fresh into the Year R class, through circle time. She had every single one of the 30 Year R children completely entranced by her energy, enthusiasm and warmth; skilfully using puppets, actions, modelling, highly effective questioning promoting active participation at their level for a staggering 45 minutes. This is undoubtedly THE way to deliver the Golden Rules to Early Years children! Staff watched, mesmerised and enthralled and left the room eager to implement the strategies to children in their classes. We feel most privileged to have observed Jenny deliver a truly outstanding session that had such a marked impact on not only the teachers but also the children in our school. Many thanks!”  Jane West, Deputy Headteacher  Orchard Infant School, Dibden Purlieu 2016

Early Years Training To Support All Young Children – Especially Those Who Need Most Support

The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) has been a major development for funding for the support of disadvantaged 3 and 4 year olds. The task has been for every provider to support young children in their development and nurture their budding social and communication skills, whilst creating a stimulating and safe environment. In the DfE report ‘Intervening Early’ evaluators reported that the Quality Circle Time programme “can be used to enhance personal and social development and to develop a sense of self-worth… particularly for those with socialisation problems”. The report also states that QCT “..provides opportunities to tackle difficult behaviours and can provide an opportunity for shy, quiet children to find their voice”. Jenny’s Early Years Training works towards strengthening the positive in children, thus supporting these aims.

“Intervening Early” 2002 is a snapshot of approaches that schools can use to support children to reach their full potential. The Whole School Quality Circle Time Model is recommended in this publication as “an effective approach primary schools can use to help pupils to get the best from school.”

Early Years TrainingEarly Years Training – Can Be Free!

We are always looking for host settings where we can hold an Early Years Training conference and invite other local practitioners to attend. Staff who belong to the ‘host setting’ are trained for free. The day is always a fantastic day of conferencing and training, bringing together local groups, sharing best practice, watching demonstrations when appropriate and generally inspiring each other. Jenny is used to working with larger numbers and this can prove to be a very economical Early Years Training model for Infant Schools or Early Years settings. For local colleagues booking onto the course, the fees are very reasonable and there are discounts for booking four or more places! Please do enquire about hosting a conference – 01225 76715 or circletime@jennymosley.co.uk.

Early Years Training Themes

Please see below the Early Years Training themes that form the majority of Jenny’s work with Early Years children, practitioners and settings. If you do not see what you are looking for, please enquire as this list below is not exhaustive.

Early Years Training – Jenny Mosley Style

Jenny Mosley’s Early Years Training days are enjoyable, vibrant and practical. Over time, your systems, your staff and your circle Early Years Trainingtimes can become tired and need re-energising. Jenny helps staff reflect upon their practice, work out new directions that they would like to go in and then equip themselves to succeed. Jenny shares tips and ideas from her wealth of experience of working with practitioners and children. Demonstrations with the children are a popular option. Jenny’s educational model can bring social and communication skills, emotional literacy, problem-solving and creativity to life.

Early Years Training – The Expected Learning Outcomes And Benefits

  • Delegates will have time to reflect upon their practice, to listen and to discuss.
  • Everyone in your setting will have the opportunity to become better speakers and listeners and better genuine dialogue can thrive.
  • Everyone comes away with a host of tips and practical ideas for running successful and vibrant practices including circle times.
  • This course is great for boosting the self-esteem of delegates and raising energy which in turn can help the self-esteem of children.

Jenny’s Work With The National Day Nurseries Association – Early Years Training, Conferencing And Creating Resources

In addition to Jenny being invited to speak at NDNA Conferences, she has been delighted to work with the NDNA on new resources for Early Years practitioners including writing the chapter on Circle Time for their book ‘Promoting Positive Behaviour’. The NDNA and Jenny also worked to produce a beautiful box set of Early Years Golden Rules Set which have been really well received in nurseries and pre-schools around the country.

“I have just purchased and introduced The Golden Rules into my preschool room. I bought the small, hard book set, set of six posters, handbook, stickers and puppets – and the children love it! Already, they know that ‘Mona Monkey listens’ and ‘Zelda Zebra is gentle’ … ” Julie Rees, Deputy Manager and SENCO, The Secret Garden Children’s Day Nursery, Gloucester

Jenny is also delighted to have written articles for several Early Years magazines including Practical Preschool and Nursery World to name but two.
