My vision for EY Matters was that it would be a 'place', a resource and a network for all Early Years / Early Childhood Professionals to come together and for some part, this has been realised.
All of the work in keeping the website updated, organising events and creating resources is my gift to the sector, but it during the Autumn of 2020 with all of it's issues, I realised that it was starting to run-away with me, for example, the Continual Online Conference presentation recordings were so popular that it was impossible to keep up with creating the certificates and at times there have been huge back logs! Not a bad problem to have I suppose!
So I decided that I needed to find the funds to automate some of the tasks so I could concentrate on supporting my clients, providing new resources and also have more time to be involved in the important issues and conversations that are happening plus also continue developing the Early Years Directory and the Training & Events Diary.
So here we are .. the EY Matters Online Training & Resource Platform!
The historical presentations are still free to view thanks to the generosity of the Presenters, but I am now also making small charges for access to some of the recorded training and events in order to support the Trainers and Consultants that give up their time to support me and also so I can continue to develop more content plus also arrange more events! We are still looking at providing some 'Free to View' content as we move through 2021 and onwards.
I hope you enjoy it and also you will receive your certificates automatically at the end of each presentation/course you take part in once you have provided your reflections.
