‘Butterflies and Bees’ This course follows on from 'Why and How?' Attachment and Emotional Health for Young People Looked After. A training course designed to support foster carers, adopters and special guardians in developing their ability and confidence to respond therapeutically to the children in their care.

We will spend some time thinking about your responses to difficulties in your relationships with the young people in your care, and discover and practice a range of practical techniques to improve their and your wellbeing. Please note that priority may need to be given to certain carers identified by the Family Placement and/or Thinking Aloud Team.

Whether this is your first post in teaching, you have come from teaching in another age group or you are returning to EYFS following time teaching in another year group, these sessions will focus on different aspects of the Reception classroom. 

Have you identified your disadvantaged children? What are you planning for narrowing the gap? Is your environment supporting learning and development for your cohort?

This is also an opportunity to make links with other teachers in EYFS and has always been a useful discussion forum for sharing ideas, tips and concerns.
