About

 

As an Early Years Consultant, I am committed to excellence. I believe in maintaining a positive mindset, creating partnerships with a purpose and always striving for significant outcomes for children, parents and Early Years Practitioners, including Childminders.

My job is to guide you on the path of success: from coaching leaders and manager through bespoke training and consultancy visits, training staff and mentoring Childminders to develop ongoing continued professional development and enabling children to reach their important milestones.

 

Contact me today for an initial consultation and find out more about how I can tailor my services to your needs.

Bespoke training and consultancy

 

 

I can provide training or consultancy visits at your setting (or online), all tailored to your individual needs and requirements.  

During an initial discussion, we can plan the focus of your support around your needs and I can design training or consultancy plans to suit you and your setting.

I have a wealth of experience in Early Years (over 20 years!) so I can provide training on any aspect of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and Education Inspection Framework (EIF). I can advise you on best practice in leadership and management for settings, including childminders and keep you up to date with any changes in Early Years. 

Whether you would like an Early Years Audit/Review to evaluate your Early Years provision, a visit following an inspection for guidance on your next steps/actions or coaching and training towards professional development then I am here for you!

Alison Hanson (Childminder) provided feedback folloowing an Early Years Audit, 10 March 2022

'I am so pleased that I made the decision to ask Helen to visit and audit my setting. She was a wonderfully supportive and positive presence, making both the children and I feel at ease. She had some really helpful insights as I prepare for a future inspection, and provided written feedback and supporting documents quickly. I would thoroughly recommend Helen's services to other settlings, both big and small!'

Charlie Branch  recommends HH Early Years Consultancy 16th June 2021

'I had my first training session with HH Early Years Consultancy tonight and I have come away feeling lots more confident in my practice and knowledge of the early years. Helen was kind, friendly, knowledable, reassuring and clear and easy to follow and listen too and learn from. Great power point to follow and plenty of useful information. I was worried with it being on zoom and being hard of hearing but Helen was great. Thank you.'

12th May 2021 - Feedback from Early Years Audit:
‘As a setting we found HH Early Years Consultancy extremely useful. Helen was a delight to work with throughout the day and gave us some great feedback from our Early years Audit. Helen was professional, positive, and full of great knowledge throughout her visit. Long wittenham pre-school were fortunate enough to gain some well prepared and knowledgeable advice regarding the new revised EYFS curriculum to ensure all staff were confident to begin this in September.

Since our visit with Helen, we received our Early Years audit feedback, and she has since followed up with us to see if we are happy and confident with everything that we had required during our visit. We look forward to using HH Early Years Consultancy in the future.’

10th May 2021 - Feedback from 'Building confidence in your curriculum workshop':

'Helen was very professional in her delivery in the training on the New changes in the EYFS. Helen's years of working in childcare settings,  meant that Helen was able to deliver the training at the right level for staff working in any  childcare setting.

Helen really helped me to understand how we as a setting could support staff and training moving forward.

I really liked the fact that Helen tailored the session with group discussions and videos of different ways to show good understanding of the intent, Implementation and impact and good ways to get staff to understand what is a curriculum?

I would highly recommend any setting working with children to book this training to give you a better understanding of how your setting can implement  the new EYFS changes.'
