The stakes have never been higher: Ofsted have a new, tougher inspection framework for the early years. If you are judged to be less than good, you risk losing funding for places. A reputation that took years to build can vanish overnight.

But instead of hiding behind the “Ofsted monster” to get things done, Early Years expert Julian Grenier argues that it’s time to do what’s right for children and families, and build long-lasting and effective provision.

Completely up to date with Ofsted’s new Common Inspection Framework and avoiding a ‘tick-box’ approach to preparation, Julian focuses on the importance of developing your provision and your team up to and beyond inspection day.  It is accompanied by easy-to-use time-saving pro formas and self-reflective documents that can be downloaded online for free.
