Supporting early years practitioners is a priority for us and we do this through our regional offices across the country and our Alliance Connect online service.
We offer practitioners a wide range of services including:
- specialist training and workshops
- business support services
- payslip services
- opportunities to meet and network through our Alliance Connect events.
Alliance members get some strands of support for free and some at reduced rates.
Important notice — Alliance Connect events and Covid 19
Because of Covid-19, Alliance Connect events are currently taking place online.
We want to ensure you will still receive important face-to-face support and advice from us at this time.
You can find out about our online events below and book via our EYA portal.
Thank you for your understanding and please be assured we are doing all we can to keep you connected locally.
What is an Alliance Connect event?
Alliance Connect offers free online networking sessions.
We have sessions for different groups involved in the early years such as baby and toddler groups, childminders, leaders and managers or parents.
Each session provides a chance for practitioners to come together, be updated where appropriate and network and share experiences and commonality.
Alliance Connect sessions for December
Helping children look after their own bodies, health and wellbeing
Children learning to look after themselves builds self-confidence and instils a sense of achievement and independence. This interactive session allows us to discuss how we can best achieve this with both the family and the child.
