The ACE Centre Nursery School, Chipping Norton, is the Lead Teaching School in OTSA specialising in Early Years Foundation stage provision and practice.
We offer a range of CPD to meet the needs of teachers and teaching assistants and staff who are working in the Foundation Stage in Oxfordshire's schools and settings. This includes specialist Inset day events, enabling whole EYFS teams to attend training together. Visits, and follow-up after training events can be arranged.
Our programme of EYFS Inspiration Days is now well-established, and we have had excellent feedback from the teachers and early years practitioners who have hugely enjoyed the opportunity to listen to some of the most respected, influential thinkers and writers currently in Early Years.
Bringing people including Anna Ephgrave, Ruth Moore, Trisha Lee, Julie Cigman, Kathryn Solly, Kirstine Beeley and Julie Fisher to speak in Oxfordshire at affordable prices is our aim, as we feel that this is a great way to inspire and motivate practitioners to deliver the very best early years provision for the young people in our schools and settings.
