Welcome to our Early Years Hub, a safe and welcoming space for Children and their Parents and Carers. The underlying principle of the Hub is to build confidence, emotional strength and emotional well-being and all sessions will have these elements at their core, whilst at the same time recognising that all children are individuals who develop at different rates. The sessions will be run by Early Years Educators who will also invite specialists into the Training sessions - such as Mental Health Professionals, Fitness and Nutrition experts, Speech and Language and others. We will be able to also sign-post Parents and Carers to other services such as SLT and OT if necessary. The Discussion Groups will cover such topics as English as a Second/Additional Language, Fussy Eating, Building Confidence Through Play and many more and will take the lead from Parents/Carers if there are particular sessions that are requested!. The Maths and English sessions will be based not only around the Early Years Curriculum but will also focus on how these two subjects can be applied at home in a fun, friendly and tangible way - all the time building the childrens' confidence and self-worth The Hub will be geared towards families of children who have not yet accessed formal education - such as those due to enter Nursery or Reception in September.
Springboard into Education: Launched March 2021
Lessons, Support, Guidance and Training for early years children, parents and carers to help with the first steps into academic life.
We know that the Covid-19 Pandemic has had such a negative impact on families, and our Springboard Into Education Scheme is committed to providing support for those families who have missed out on day to day social and educational interaction and input so that the children will feel more supported and confident when entering a classroom environment in September 2021. This in turn will allow them to access more fully all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.
Our Weekly Lessons
We are providing Early Years Lessons for both Maths and English for children who have not yet accessed formal education - i.e. children who will be entering Nursery/Reception in September 2021. All lessons are led by our team of established Early Years Practitioners and SEND Co-Ordinator.
Each week our in-person lessons run in Ealing, Chelsea and Stratford, hosting by multilingual teachers. We are aiming to reach all over London with our offering to allow all interested families to attend. Each session includes activities, enabling the children to learn together, build social skills, and for the parents to learn tips and tricks they can do at home to continue their child development.
Our Discussion Groups
The Discussion Groups are made to be a safe and welcoming environment to not only exchange ideas but offer advice on various topics such as English as a Second/Additional Language, Fussy Eating. Health and Nutrition, How Early Years Language Develops, Understanding Anxiety in Young Children and more - and we welcome input from Parents/Carers with regard to what other topics they may wish to be covered.
Our Training and Guest Speaker Groups
Our Guest Speakers are drawn from all sectors and will include Mental Health Specialists, Play Specialists, Early Years Teachers and we also look forward to providing fun Singing and Fitness sessions for the children

"I loved the group classes “Baby & Me”! Svetlana who lead them is wonderful and very passionate about teaching. Lots of tips and tricks shared that can make the parents life easier and toddlers more interested in a task. Wish each class is a bit longer to allow for a more leisurely pace to enjoy it fully!"
