Early Years education and childcare training

Early Childhood Services vision: "We want Nottinghamshire to be a place where children feel safe, healthy and happy, where everyone enjoys a good quality of life and where everyone can achieve their potential.

"We want to ensure that all young children and their families are able to reach their potential by having the best possible start in life through the provision of high quality, integrated early childhood services that prepare them for school and narrow the attainment gap between the most disadvantaged children and their peers."

Through the following training and development opportunities we aim is to support you to make a difference for children, young people and their families, improve outcomes for children and develop high quality, inclusive and safe early education and childcare provision. 

The training outlined on these pages is open to childcare settings in the county of Nottinghamshire. Other practitioners working outside the county who wish to attend courses will incur a charge of £50 (unless other fees are stated).
