    Liz Pemberton, The Black Nursery Manager, presents 'Working Towards Anti Racist Practice in the Early Years Setting'

    Places are still available on Sessions 2 and 3. Please ensure your invoice is settled to enable us to send you the precourse information (including zoom invitation).

    Precourse information was emailed to everyone whose invoice was settled on Tuesday 7th May. If you have not received it, please check your junk/spam folder and if still not received, please telephone 01452 541244 (before 3:30pm) / 07949 930465 (after 3:30pm.)

    (Please note this course was previously advertised with the title 'How to Explore Race with Children in Early Years Settings’ but the content has not changed.)

    Embedding cultures and diversity within an early years setting is a vital part of the EYFS. Children and their families will feel valued by the setting if resources and displays represent the ethnic, cultural and social diversity in society, and if they can see their own family background and culture represented as well as those of others. True inclusion means your setting will have diversity running through its core regardless of your current make-up of families on role.

    Course Aim: To promote inclusive practice in the Early Years (under 5's) education sector, with a particular focus on how race, culture and anti-racism should be considered in this practice.

    Session 1: Statutory and Non-Statutory Guidance: This first session will look closely at how some of the statutory and non-statutory guidance can support us to work towards anti-racist practice. We will closely examine how the Development Matters and Birth to Five Matters documents can be interpreted to support our journey towards anti-racist practice.

    Session 2 : Conversations: How do we prepare ourselves for unexpected conversations about race when children ask ? This session will look at language and how we can best educate ourselves to ensure that we are equipped. This session will also look at how we engage families appropriately.

    Session 3: Resources: How do you audit your existing resources to help ensure an anti-racist approach is supported in the setting ? How can we ensure that our practice goes beyond having Black dolls and a range of different coloured crayons ? How do we move towards a whole team approach to continuously work towards creating an anti-racist environment?


    Suitable For: Anyone working with children under the age of 5.

    Dates: Wednesday 8th, 15th and 22nd May

    Time:  4:00pm - 5:30pm

    Venue: Online

    Cost:  members £30 / non members £35 (for all three sessions). (It is not compulsory to attend all three sessions, however, the same person named on the booking must attend the session(s))

    PATA Pocket-Sized: Oral Health (Through Sensory Play)

    This course is now confirmed as going ahead.

    Please note this course was originally advertised to take place on Wednesday 5th June but we have had to change it to Tuesday 4th June,

    Toddlers and very young children often put things in their mouths, grind their teeth, chew on their clothes as a way to develop a sense of their bodies. Oral seeking children may even try to bite others.

    This hour long session will explore the importance of oral sensory play and taste experiences as stimulating all our senses by considering:

    • how developing a strong sense of taste and smell helps children become familiar with different flavours and textures.

    • oral motor activity ideas (including the story of Mr Tongue) – to develop the control of children’s lips, tongue and saliva.

    • why oral health is in the EYFS framework.

    Please be aware that PATA Pocket Sized sessions are an insight to the subject topic and given the short time, inevitably, we won't be able to cover everything.  If more in-depth training is required then we may be able to offer this if there is enough interest or as a bespoke course for you.  Also, please be mindful that these sessions can be fast paced with lots of information contained within them to ensure you get the most out of the hour session.

    Suitable For: Any Early Years Practitioners, Teaching Assistants and Reception Teachers   

    Delivered by: Kate Beevers who is a qualified teacher with over 25 years experience of working with children and their families; in Schools and Early Years settings.

    Self-Regulation, Executive Function and Play in Early Years

    Course Aim: to provide practitioners with a better understanding of what self-regulation and executive function looks like in their setting. And how this fits within the revised EYFS and Development Matters.

    Course Information: What does a self-regulation look like in a child? We are not born with self-regulatory skills but we are born with the ability to learn. Self-regulation matures in the presence of supportive, nurturing relationships and environments. Play is an important way in which we can support the development of children’s self-regulatory skills particularly through pretend and physical play. This course will consider how we can support the development of self-regulation and executive function using a variety of strategies.

If you have a child who starts biting, any members of your team who are registered with NoodleNow can do the course as a refresher and come up with a plan of action.

    We think that these courses will complement our 'live' training and provide you with another option for keeping your practice fresh and relevant.

    Course included in the package cover everything from food safety, manual handling, physical development and outstanding practice. You can see the full list of courses here.

    Cost (PATA Members only):

    We are able to offer access to our members for 

    £25 per person (no additional VAT) with no minimum number and including Noodle Nibbles.

    (Individual membership is usually £99+VAT or organisational membership (with a minimum of 5 people) is usually £25+VAT per person (so a minimum of £150). There is also a ‘bolt on’ package of short courses called Noodle Nibbles which are usually an extra £5+VAT per person which will be included in your package.)

    The access will last for a year and you can do as many of the courses in that time as you wish for no additional costs.

    Roles and Responsibilities: Key facts for your Committee 

    This relaxed and informative session is ideal for all new and experienced committee members and/or setting managers to exchange ideas and feel more confident in their role. Using the PATA constitution as a framework, we will break down each section and use this to discuss the committee’s full responsibilities both regulatory (Ofsted and Charities Commission) and day to day in the running of the setting.

    Suitable For: Those involved in managing and leading settings – parents, committee members and managers.

    We would strongly encourage both a committee member(s) and senior member of staff to attend this course. Whilst this course is entitled ‘Roles and Responsibilities: Key Facts for your Committee’ the emphasis of the course is on both the committee and senior staff working together and respecting and understanding each other’s roles, so we feel it is important and beneficial for both committee and senior members of staff to attend if possible.

    PATA Pocket-Sized: Fostering Independence

    This course was originally scheduled for 12th March but has been postponed until 24th September. Please register your interest by joining the waiting list and we will be in touch once a date is confirmed.

    This hour-long session explores the importance of fostering independence in early years. This explores how we can ensure we provide the best opportunities to allow for children to become independent in themselves and how we can support and develop children to think independently. This course includes plenty of ideas for you to explore and to reflect on your current practice. An ideas sheet to support your environment and daily practice will also be included.

    Please be aware that PATA Pocket Sized sessions are an insight to the subject topic and given the short time, inevitably, we won't be able to cover everything.  If more in-depth training is required then we may be able offer this if there is enough interest or as a bespoke course for you.  Also, please be mindful that these sessions can be fast paced with lots of information contained within them to ensure you get the most out of the hour session.
