Today the Highland ELC team hosted a Webinar from Inverness with links to Portree, Wick, Dingwall and Fort William. Information was shared about the latest ELC expansion news for Highland. This gave Kirsty Henry, the new Senior Manager for Early Years, the opportunity to introduce herself and meet ELC staff. Jennifer Campbell, Early Years Expansion Project Lead, shared Highland updates. Annika Jansson, ELC lead within the change team, shared key messages from the Scottish Government and other national guidance around how we maintain and develop quality within ELC. Workshops then took place in areas where ELC managers and staff were asked to identify key features of a high quality ethos and environment in ELC. These features will be compiled, shared with settings and used to support self-evaluation. If you missed the Webinar, you can catch up by reading the presentation slides which are attached below.
