Professional Development

Our multi-award winning nursery offers a number of professional development opportunities through our Training School opened in May 2015. We offer a range of opportunities from short courses and bespoke consultancy, to visit days for small groups to larger professional development events. For more information about our upcoming professional development events, please check out our Events page.

Our courses have been developed to reflect our unique values and passion for enquiry-based learning, the Reggio Emilia approach, outdoor learning philosophies and great leadership. Hayley, Charlotte and the Training Team often presents work from around the nursery group to early years events which are announced via our ‘NEWS’ page, social media accounts and mailing list.

Please contact Kerry at kerry@littlebarnowls.co.uk for more information and to be included on our mailing list for upcoming courses and events.
