Time for Transitions training event in Wales

We would like to invite members and all registered childminders and nannies in Wales to attend our free PACEY Cymru 'Time for Transitions' training event supported by Welsh Government funding.  We are holding two events- one in north Wales and one in the south- over the next couple of months.

What will the training include?

There are many types of transitions in a child’s life. They may experience big transitions such as moving house or starting childcare or school for the first time, and smaller ones during the day such as moving from an activity to snack or meal times.

Transitions can be difficult for both adults and children, and this training day will offer you the opportunity to explore strategies and to share best practice in order to help the children you care for cope with such situations and to help their future resilience to change. 

This training will support you with planning and supporting children's learning and development especially in line with the Foundation Phase.  It will also support you with providing evidence for CIW to show how you have reflected on and improved your practice.

How do I book on and how much does it cost?

Further information on the course date and locations are listed below. This event is free for PACEY Members, all registered childminders and nannies in Wales (a small deposit of £15 will be required at booking, further information on this can be found below). For non-members who are working in childcare and early years sector the cost is £15 per person (non-refundable). 

A booking form and deposit is required to secure your place. Please note places are subject to availability and we suggest booking early to avoid disappointment and are limited initially to one member of staff per childcare setting.

As mentioned above, you will need to include with this booking form a cheque for £15 and if you are a PACEY Member, registered childminder or nanny in Wales this will be returned to you on attendance at the event.  Please make cheques payable to PACEY. Cancellation or non-attendance at the event will result in this cheque being banked by PACEY.
