I have found the course very informative. The webinars each week have been very helpful, the chance to talk and share our experiences with one another. The tutor has been amazing and very supportive, Thank you

The staff were all so much more confident for having almost a term's worth of our Elklan practice under our belts amongst other CPD so I wanted to say thank you. Our inspector verbally fed back that it was amazing to see such a wealth of knowledge and high quality of practice across all the team; even the most inexperienced including our first year apprentice. So we really are grateful! . The impact on the team has been so great. I’ve got staff talking about ICWs and making photo cards in their break times; also making story baskets and offering ideas for building phonemic awareness in staff meetings. It’s changed our culture I really do believe! So thank you!

Thank you for the opportunity to access this course. I have learnt a wealth of information that i can now use within everyday practice within the nursery environment. The videos and training provided by Elklan were honest and by showing a negative video I could reflect on not only their practice but our own. Marie and Lynda were fantastic and made the webinair sessions enjoyable and by sharing thier own practice and other people of the training i have learnt a range of different skills and ideas on how to do things! Thank you

Very informative love the layout of the slide lots of detailed information would 100% recommend. The amount of information you learn is so vast! And I loved the conversations we were able to have between settings over the meetings to learn from each other. I was sad for it to come to an end!

I just wanted you to know how valuable it's been for me to do this course. I would champion this course to anyone. It has given me a new level of understanding for the children I work with and how difficult it must be for children who really have a development delay.

The Vocabulary Planner is invaluable in planning for the words and prompts that could be used to encourage language in individual children. Invaluable guidance for all practitioners.

Using the favourite vocab we have noticed the children […] have taken these words and fully understand the meaning and can now use them in their play.
