Promoting high quality teaching for 0 – 8 years. Inspiration and support for early years learning.

Cambridge Early Years Teaching School is a collaborative group of six nursery schools in Cambridge and Huntingdon who work with early years experts and associates to offer high quality services throughout the early years sector. We work with nurseries and schools in  maintained, private, voluntary and independent settings. We also provide ideas, activities and information for parents.

Makaton Taster Course – 27 January 2021, 6.30 to 8.30pm

Our first course will be of interest to parents and practitioners who would like an insight into the Makaton sign language. It is fascinating how it can transform communication between parents and babies, children developing language, EAL and intergenerational conversation for all ages.

EYITT course – to qualify as an early years teacher

In September 2020 Cambridge Early Years took on a cohort of students who are working hard to qualify as specialist teachers in early years. The course is in partnership with Essex SCITT and is led in Cambridge by Kay Blayney and Kay Dimelow. The student teachers are working hard towards their qualifications whilst all settings are having to cope with the challenges of Covid-19.
