"Our children and families are at the heart of everything that we do"

Being Two Project

We are currently taking part in a project called ‘Being Two’.   The focus of the project is to develop ways of working effectively with children and families accessing the Two Year Old Entitlement Offer.


Outcomes for children:

  • Children’s learning needs will be met more effectively through an improved and better differentiated pedagogy

Outcomes for Parents:

  • Parents developing a deeper understanding of child development and an improved home learning environment.

Outcomes for the setting include:

  • Increased confidence in making professional judgements
  • Increased pedagogical dialogue and reflection
  • Increased dialogue between workers and parents
  • More rigorous and systematic assessment data
  • Time to reflect and network with other settings
