Early Years Teacher Status

The benefits of Early Years Teacher Status – from nursery leaders’ perspectives.
Nurseries are the foundation of a child’s education. It’s not just the place they often first learn how to spell and count – the building blocks they need for primary school – but the environment in which they start to develop their core skills like imagination, creativity and social interaction. In fact, a child’s early years in education are some of the most crucial to their development – and the people responsible for their learning, their teachers, really do have the ability to make a huge, lasting impact.
As the Managing Director of The Old Station Nursery Group, which operates across Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire, Sarah Steel is lucky enough to work with some fantastic teachers that each have a vast amount of experience in working with pre-school children. As part of her 90-strong workforce, Sarah has found it particularly valuable having members of staff with Early Years Teacher Status (EYTS) – a nationally recognised status that helps to increase standards across the board.
