Preschool Manager at Playdays Pre-school
It has given me much more confidence and helped me to develop my role as a manager, made things a lot clearer and I know what I need to do. I can focus on the most important areas and prioritise what I have to do. More recently it is helping me to delegate effectively. All of this means that my leadership is having a positive impact on every area of the setting.
The programme has provided the most useful training we have had because it is tailored to our needs.
We did not expect some of the work we have done to have had such a huge impact. For example, when we changed the format of our learning journals, and the way we worked with parents to gather their contributions, the response of the parents was far greater, and more positive than we had anticipated. Also, there was significant impact for staff around being able to accurately make judgements about children’s achievements; this was greater than we expected. The journals have become a really important and effective tool for communication and developing partnerships with parents.
