In these days of reduced capacity in local authorities it can be a struggle to get sustainable improvement in Early Years practice. One way forward is to think about bring selected settings together as a project group. I am currently working on projects which focus on behaviour, inclusion, PSED, two year olds with different local authorities. The project content and format is tailored to local need but generally runs for a year with a termly meeting and agreed activities between sessions. It could work just as well for half termly meeting over two terms or monthly for one term etc.
