Individual Support Visits

Meeting

The Alliance recognises that support for providers within the early years sector can be variable.

We have qualified development workers who can come and support settings with different aspects of your work.

We can provide a package for you on an annual basis, as well as bespoke one-off packages.

Individual visits for your setting can be booked at a cost of £75 + VAT for a 2 hour visit which will be followed up by a comprehensive written report.

Typically, this may be used for specific guidance for managers or committees for planning or induction.

Pebbles Pre-school

Our setting offers a loving and caring environment for your child to feel secure, we follow children’s individual needs and work with them and you to support their learning.
We understand that parents are the children’s first educators therefore we promote shared learning such as photos from home, observations from home, these are then included in your child’s learning journey.

We also have Pebbles the Bear, who loves to come on adventures to children’s homes, from having a bed time story, to a winter walk, to even going on holidays – the bear enables the practitioners to engage with your children and what is important to them at home.
