​​​At Cambridge Early Years we are able to offer a wide range of support, consultancy and training. Below we have noted some of the more popular services we offer. However we recognise that all organisations are individual so we tailor our support to your needs.  Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss any needs or ideas you might have.

Cambridge Early Years can provide bespoke advice, support and design ideas for new settings, including: premises selection and design, staff selection, equipment, day to day operations and education programs.

We can also support existing settings looking to gain an Outstanding Ofsted judgment or those who need support to turn their provision around following an Inadequate judgment.

Consultancy is tailored to your needs and can start from as little as one day's support.

Full Quality Audit – 2 day package:
We visit your setting for one and a half days, working alongside you and your team to identify strengths and areas of potential improvement within your setting. Working closely with the management team we focus on any key areas. During the visit you will receive real-time support to develop your practice and enable you to move your setting forward. Ofsted documents such as the Statutory Framework and the Early Years Inspection Handbook are used to explain judgements that are being made, enabling you to better understand the inspection process.

Half a day is spent creating a written report of key findings and recommendations, linked to the Statutory Framework and Early Years Inspection Handbook to enable you to create a robust self-evaluation and development plan for your setting.

Short Quality Audit – 1 and a half day package:
We visit your setting for one day and carry out a range of activities including:

  • Observing interactions between staff and children
  • Tracking children
  • Meeting with management
  • Conducting joint observations
  • Reviewing paperwork

At the end of the day you are provided with robust feedback.

After our visit you will receive a bullet point report of the findings linked to the four Ofsted areas, as well as supportive recommendations to enable you to move your setting forward.
