    Claire Lowery @clairewiththere@educationgovuk thanks for stopping by :) #eytalking

    DfE @educationgovukWhat do we think about the best ways to get schools more involved with the early years?

    City Calling Xtra @CityCallingXtra@educationgovuk @EYTalking Schools need to encourage part time classes for both parentand child #EYTalking

    DfE @educationgovuk@CityCallingXtra Agreed - schools need to respond to families needs #EYTalking

    Kathy Brodie @kathybrodie@educationgovuk #EYTalking Should schools be involved in EY? They have no training, noexperience, wrong equipment and diff attitude

    City Ca lling Xtra @CityCallingXtra@educationgovuk @EYTalking #EYTalking Schools are a place to learn and this shouldnever be forgotten. Keep it simple.

    Sue Cowley @Sue_CowleyCan I ask what roles the @educationgovuk feels different providers can play within thesector and what support each should get? #EYTalking

    DfE @educationgovuk@Sue_Cowley really keen to see a wide range of providers so parents have lots of choice#EYTalking

    Sarah Steel @nurserysarah@educationgovuk @trussliz comments in Sunday papers that schools could offer quality for2yos because of graduate leaders. So do PVIs!

    Courteney Donaldson @courteneyccs@signoramac @educationgovuk Been approached by numerous schools over the past fewyears seeking to outsource #EY provision #SkillShortage

    Heather Williams @MissHWilliamsxx@signoramac @educationgovuk surely investing in quality providers would be morebeneficial? #EYTalking

    Sue Cowley @Sue_Cowley@educationgovuk @signoramac my sense is that both childminders and voluntary runsettings are under supported at the moment. #EYTalking

    'EASY' EYFS SOF TWARE @EASYsol4NURSERY@MissHWilliamsxx @signoramac @educationgovuk surely investing in quality providerswould be more beneficial? #EYTalking ABSOLUTELY

    Sue Cowley @Sue_Cowley@MissHWilliamsxx @signoramac @educationgovuk childminders are the closest you canget to a 'home' environment and great value for money.

    DfE @educationgovuk@signoramac Not better, but as good? Evidence shows graduate led provision is important.#EYTalking. Choice is for parents to make.

    Simona McKenzie @signoramac@MissHWilliamsxx @educationgovuk If funding was higher many more providers wouldoffer places especially #CMs #sustainability #EYTalking

    Haslemere Museum @haslemeremuseum@signoramac @courteneyccs @educationgovuk #eytalking 2yo in schools? Should 4yo bein school would be my question, definitely not 2yo

    Heather Will iams @MissHWilliamsxx@Sue_Cowley @signoramac @educationgovuk completely agree!

    Sue Cowley @Sue_Cowley@educationgovuk @signoramac the evidence you refer to is for older children + funding isvery different #EYTalking

    DfE @educationgovuk@MissHWilliamsxx We're incentivising quality provision, eg two year old entitlement is onlyfor good/outstanding providers #EYTalking

    Jane Harrison @JaneRedHen@educationgovuk @Sue_Cowley We should be helping parents understand what is in thechild's best interests

    EYTalking @EYTalkingfolks please can you remember to use the hash tag - #EYTalking - Thanks@educationgovuk

    Sarah Fill ingham @SarahFilPorticoI'd like to ask why it is felt that schools are worthy of a 10,000 grant for having 2 yr olds -

    @courteneyccs @educationgovuk #EYTalking

    Sarah Fillingham @SarahFilPorticoWhen as a PVI provider we cannot even dream of this kind of financial support@courteneyccs @educationgovuk #EYTalking

    DfE @educationgovuk@SarahFilPortico so learning can be shared - here's our reasoning: http://ow.ly/sMKL6#EYTalking

    Kathy Brodie @kathybrodie@educationgovuk #EYTalking 'Many autho rities have placed childrens centres at the heartof their two-year-old programme' p.35 so Y closing?

    DfE @educationgovuk@SarahFilPortico we know it's challenging but are making changes to take money to frontline #EYTalking

    Jane Harrison @JaneRedHen@educationgovuk @SarahFilPortico Where might I access this in my PVI setting?

    Sarah Steel @nurserysarah@educationgovuk I see challenge of getting funding to front line, but this must be sortedbefore more funding rolled out #EYTalking

    Sara h Fillingham @SarahFilPorticoSupporting other schools - yes @educationgovuk but developing resources&staff training -that'd be nice. feels like we are not valued to me

    Simona McKenzie @signoramac@nurserysarah @educationgovuk More funding to #frontline is now #rhetoric it is nothappening #EYTalking

    Sarah Steel @nurserysarah

    @signoramac @educationgovuk #EYTalking I don't agree, I sit on Schools Forum and LAknows it must pass more on, but must also meet stat duty

    Jo Newland @JoNewland

    @kathybrodie I think there should be set pay banding for levels of qualification. Peoplespend years in Uni to remain on the same pay.....

    Jo Newland @JoNewland@kathybrodie ..... It's no wonder all of the talented people leave private nurseries

    Amii Spark @faitaveclecoeur@kathybrodie Due to that Q I decided to do Montessori teaching diploma, specialist and wellviewed world wide without politics

    @educationgovuk you would hope it is but it isn't. The children need the same environmentas an EY setting with EY staff not TA's

    @Clarelouisebod @EYTalking @educationgovuk individual inspection is the key - the

    reason for agencies is a cost cutting exercise #EYTalkingJane Harrison @JaneRedHen2yr olds need skilled practitioners, not teachers #EYTalking

    Heather Williams @MissHWilliamsxx@JaneRedHen completely agree!

    Esther O'Connor @EstherOConnor5@JaneRedHen @EYTalking most 'teachers' in ey see themselves as practitioners as theyare passionate about ey

    amy trowell @amyk21@JaneRedHen Agree, they also need to be in a more 'homely' environment than aclassroom all day.

    LEYF Nurse ries @leyfonline"@JaneRedHen: 2yr olds need skilled practitioners, not teachers #EYTalking"

    CMB @catmab@leyfonline @JaneRedHen Who says a QTS can't be a skilled practitioner?

    Sarah Green @SarahSarahg66@EstherOConnor5 @EYTalking couldn't agree more. Some even have TAs with a degreeand EYPS .

    LEYF Nurseries @leyfonline@catmab forgive me qts?

    CMB @catmab@leyfonline Qualfied teacher status. Shorthand saved space!

    kids activ8 @kidsactiv8#EYTalking @educationgovuk childminders need support, training and recognition - people'sperception of early years needs to change

    Simona McKenzie @signoramac@kidsactiv8 @educationgovuk Agree with no support #CMs may drop grade and hand 2yoback to #LA? #EYTalking

    DfE @educationgovuk@kidsactiv8 We hope CMAs will provide another source of support here #EYTalking

    kids activ8 @kidsactiv8@educationgovuk will they be @Ofstednews regulated? #EYTalking
