What being a Somerset Early Years Teaching Centre means to us.
Brock House Day Nursery became a Somerset Early Years Teaching Centre in September 2013. We work collaboratively with Taunton School pre prep.
Our main objectives as a Somerset Early Years Teaching Centre are to work with colleges and universities to train new candidates coming into the profession. We do this by inviting trainees into our setting, while they are with us, we role model good practice. We also make sure that they have excellent training and mentoring support.
At the heart of Somerset’s vision is the aim to improve outcomes for children and families and a commitment to the professional development of all early years’ practitioners.
We recognise that working practitioners are one of the best sources of expertise and knowledge in the field, and are superbly placed to offer opportunities to share best practice and the peer-to-peer support.
