Early Years

The ACE Centre Nursery School and Teaching School, Chipping Norton, is OTSA’s Teaching School specialising in Early Years Foundation stage provision and practice.

We offer a range of CPD to meet the needs of teachers, teaching assistants and staff who are working in the EYFS in Oxfordshire’s schools and settings. This includes specialist inset day events, enabling whole EYFS teams to attend training together.

Our programme of EYFS Inspiration Days is now well-established, giving practitioners the opportunity to listen to some of the most respected and influential thinkers and writers currently in Early Years. This has proved a great way to inspire and motivate practitioners to innovate in order to deliver the very best early years provision for the children in our schools and settings.
