NCA – What Are the Standards
The Nurturing Childhood Accreditation
Offering the key adults within every child’s life the knowledge, understanding and support required to nurture and develop every child’s full potential.
What Are the Standards?
All Nurturing Childhoods courses are underpinned by the DfE Professional Development Standards.
These standards are discussed through focused reflections at the beginning of each session and used to tailor its content, reflections and collaborations.
In this way ownership is retained by those implementing change, ensuring it is rooted in the specific needs of the children it is designed to support. While being sure that professional development is steeped in robust evidence and expertise.
The Department for Education (England) suggests that effective teaching requires considerable knowledge and skill, which should be developed as a teachers’ career progresses.
This requires high-quality professional development, steeped in rigorous scholarship.
It requires professionals who want to continually develop and support each other.
And it requires reflective improvements with intended outcomes and evaluation so that children benefit from the best possible practice.
Nurturing Childhoods believes that children, in their early years, and those working with them deserve no less.
