NMT Discussions: Navigating strategies during Covid-19 uncertainty

In case you missed the sixth Nursery Management Today webinar, you can now view a recording of the session.

We all know that there will be opportunities for growth after the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. While managing the current health crisis and its impact on the early years sector is our first priority, we also need to prepare for the mid- and long-term effects of the current situation.

Clare Roberts, chief executive of Kids Planet Day Nurseries and Jonathan Jay, managing director of Welcome Nurseries will be on to discuss their Covid-19 strategies and what needs to happen next to move the sector forward.

The latest Government guidance asking early years providers, including childminders, to begin bringing back children from 1 June onwards has not yet been backed up with clarity on how this can be achieved safely for the sector.

NMT Discussions: How digital platforms can support the early years sector

In case you missed the fifth Nursery Management Today webinar, you can now view a recording of the session.

The move to working from home for the majority of us has meant that society has to embrace technology more to keep business and communications open.

John Ingham, chief information officer at Connect Childcare will discuss the role technology plays in supporting and protecting the early years sector during Covid-19.

Using technology has undoubtedly helped the shift to remote working and kept business channels open for nursery settings, however John highlights how digitisation is a double-edged sword. While it can improve transparency and accountability, users must be fully aware of all their software to combat cyber-crime.

NMT Discussions: The digital route to access childcare

In case you missed the fourth Nursery Management Today webinar, you can now view a recording of the session.

Since the outbreak of Covid-19 the early years sector has had to adapt very quickly. The move to home learning has meant that many parents cannot use their normal childcare services.

Susan McGhee, chief executive of Flexible Childcare Services Scotland discusses a new tool, which is an adapted version of FCSS’s Flexible Pathway toolkit as well as the current situation in Scotland.

The digital tool will assess demand for childcare and available childcare provision. FCSS, the Scottish Government and Local Authorities are working closely together to deliver easy access to childcare and early learning solutions for key worker parents.

NMT Discussions:

Responding to the business impact of Covid-19

In case you missed the third Nursery Management Today webinar, you can now view a recording of the session.

The live event featured a panel of early years providers who are doing everything they can to steer their nurseries through this crisis.

The panellists shared their ongoing strategies to support their employees, children and parents, as well as the financial strain this has put on the sector and their future plans to re-open fully once the nation has weathered this storm.

The Covid-19 pandemic has meant that the early years sector is now much more visible to the government and cannot easily be ignored. If too many settings have to close down permanently this will have significant consequences for economic recovery once the lockdown ends.

This webinar is a fantastic opportunity for providers, suppliers and investors across the early years sector to engage with the present expert thinking during this pandemic.

NMT Discussions: Policy pain points

In case you missed the second Nursery Management Today webinar, you can now view a recording of the session.

On Wednesday 22 April, NMT’s webinar series continued yesterday with a live event featuring Purnima Tanuku, chief executive of NDNA.

Purnima discussed the lobbying efforts of the NDNA and its main priorities during the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as current Government policies, navigating through the regulations and where it has been falling short for early years providers.

During this difficult period of time it is vital that legislative requirements continue to be met and that Government guidance continues to support the sector. However, recent guidance from the DfE only brings about more uncertainty.

NMT Discussions:

How the Covid-19 response has unfolded so far

In case you missed the first Nursery Management Today webinar, you can now view a recording of the session.

The panellists from across the early years sector discussed the initial impact that Covid-19 has had on nursery settings, the response from the Government, the work of the UK Childcare Covid-19 Crisis Working Group, and what can be done next to tackle the barriers ahead.

 

The panellists also delivered an in-depth analysis of the safeguarding challenges that are faced by nursery staff including a worrying lack of PPE.

 

During the Covid-19 crisis, NMT will be producing more webinars so keep tuning in, we’ve more to come.
