  • Emotional Health and Wellbeing Training for Leicestershire Healthy Tots 
  • FREE Training for early years practitioners to support Emotional health and wellbeing as part of the Leicestershire Healthy Tots Programme.

This training will support you to provide better outcomes for children’s emotional health and well-being.

  • examine how Ofsted may inspect and assess your practice in this area
