The one thing we all want is to be Ofsted-ready!

Working with children comes with a considerable amount of red tape. Your business must be registered with the Office for Standards in Education (Ofsted) but before you can do this there are two preliminary steps – a DBS check (a scan to check your suitability and your history for any prior criminal convictions) and you must fill out a health declaration booklet, which requires you to list any health problems and medications you are taking.

To be successful in registration your business will need to demonstrate to Ofsted that you comply with the standards, including staff training and vetting; child group size, fire safety and premise regulations (if you decide to convert your home into a nursery this will require planning permission). You should also contact your local environmental health department to ensure your business complies with legal obligations under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Food Safety Act.

The registration process takes time as officials have to check that your business meets requirements – allow for at least six months for it to be finalised as staff will be checked for their suitability to work with children too.

My Approach

What better way is there to teach than to work directly with the learner. As we all know everyone learns differently, so I decided to offer a more hands on approach for learners, enabling them to see and understand what to do and how to do it!

If as a manager, you require help implementing robust systems into your business or guidance regarding your cashflow, I can work with you to make sure that you have the correct systems in place to enable you to achieve your goal.

If you require help building and inspiring your team, I can share with you tried and tested ways that will give you a team that you have always dreamed of. My approach is to work closely with teams to ensure that they have a clear understanding of your expectations and vision, combined with the knowledge and expertise for teaching and learning in the Early Years if required.

My unique approach has helped to build teams and businesses across the country, and not just in the Early Years sector.

Each business has individual needs. Let your journey to success begin today!
