Whatever your training requirements, wherever you are, I can help you.
“Laura Henry gave fantastic seminars to all our nursery staff. She is a wonderful motivator and her workshops and seminars are always captivating. She is always resourceful and open-minded and tailor-makes the workshops and seminars to our needs, culture and region. She has a wonderful rapport with all the teachers and her workshops are always very popular.”

EYFS 2014 clearly states: “Providers must support staff to undertake appropriate training and professional development opportunities to ensure they offer quality learning and development experiences for children that continually improves”.
I am able to help you develop training plans and reflective documents for your staff, to meet this requirement of registration.
My specialisms are devising and delivering high quality training workshops, INSET days, conferences and extended learning programmes on a host of Early Years related topics. Emphasis is placed upon self-reflection and the practical application of theory.
Watch me in action:
Delegates are encouraged to create action plans that identify specific next steps to support the implementation and enhancement of standards.
I use a variety of approaches to tap into the individual’s creativity; for example if there is an outdoor area at a venue, we go outside, work in groups, sometimes standing, sometimes siting. The variety of group exercises keys into individual learning styles, making sure that there is inclusive learning in place.
Each delegate receives a set of comprehensive handouts, the PowerPoint presentation and a certificate of attendance to support their continuous professional and personal development.
“With her extensive experience in our sector, combined with authoritative delivery, Laura’s approach to skills development is exceptional. She combines depth of knowledge with interesting anecdotes that bring her training to life and helps make it relevant to what we face every day in our nursery. Everyone, no matter what their job scope, will get a lot from the challenges she raises – she really gets you thinking about your own practice.”
