On 12th April the nursery was closed for a staff training day, the staff travelled to weston nursery for a group training session.
In the morning we had training from Mike Akers - about verbal and non verbal story telling. The staff were shown ideas of how to create non verbal stories & then the staff had chance to practise their own non verbal stories and show them to the group.
In the afternoon we split into room age groups and had some training based on a specific need for the room. 0-2s had some training on outdoor play learning, 2-3's had mark making and maths training, and 3-5s had training on letters & sounds & rising stars - supporting the children to be school ready.
The managers and deputies had some training with our area manager bernadette. We had a very productive day and are looking forward to implementing these ideas into our own individual settings.
