Services for Young Children believe that Professional Options can enhance provider’s opportunity to improve outcomes for children. We also believe that our pricing structure will enable providers to purchase training and support at times of need (e.g. prior to/after an Ofsted Inspection).

It is recommended that Early Years providers may wish to join together in order to share the cost and achieve viable/maximum numbers e.g. 2 days training for 20 participants will cost £60 per person (not including venue/refreshments).
