Struggling to spark new learning from children's interests? Maybe feeling like your provision leans too heavily towards adult-led activities? If children aren't taking the reins of their own learning or seem disengaged with your current activities, Schemaplay could be the missing link.

Schemaplay helps you dive into a child's thought process by observing their behaviours, or 'schemes'. From throwing to posting, bashing to spinning, these behaviours offer valuable insights into how children make sense of their world. As a skilled childminder, you can leverage these behaviours to drive meaningful learning experiences forward.

Exciting news! Cohort 2 of our Childminder Schemaplay Training and Accreditation programme is launching this March. This tailor-made programme combines top-tier training, expert coaching, valuable networking, and a robust assessment process designed to enhance your practice. Take the training at your own pace, with additional support provided through ongoing Zoom coaching sessions.


Here's how it works:

1️⃣ Upon signing up, you'll receive a series of pre-training audits and checks to kickstart the accreditation process and tailor the training to your needs. These assessments help us understand your current provision for supporting learners effectively.

2️⃣ Join us for two live Zoom training sessions, each lasting 1.5 hours, scheduled for March 19th and 20th. Can't make it live? Don't worry – recordings will be available for your convenience.

3️⃣ Take a month to integrate the training into your practice. Throughout this period, you'll submit various 'spotting scheme observations' for review. I'll provide feedback and guidance to help you further enhance your practice.

4️⃣ Our first coaching call, lasting 30 minutes on Zoom, will delve into your scheme-spotting observations and address any areas for improvement.

5️⃣ Over the next 2-3 months, continue spotting schemes, attending coaching calls, and compiling connected observations for accreditation evidence. Together, we'll refine your provision to align seamlessly with a scheme-positive environment.

6️⃣ Once you've gathered your observations, we'll submit them to Schemaplay HQ for evaluation. Rest assured, I'm committed to supporting you until you pass – included in the cost!

7️⃣ Upon successful completion, you'll receive your certificate, a testament to your achievement that you can proudly display in your setting.

There's no limit to the number of coaching sessions or accreditation submissions you can make. I guarantee your accreditation success, no matter the timeline.

For just £200 or 4 x monthly instalments of £50, you'll gain access to comprehensive training, coaching, accreditation ensuring you receive the best value as a childminder. 🌟
