This toolkit is far more than a SEF. It covers a much wider range of subjects and is designed to help your centre develop across many other areas, to effectively meet the needs of the community that you serve. It is also a self-evaluation framework that will support you in developing staff and meeting the needs of the Ofsted inspection framework, as you work towards becoming rated as an outstanding children's centre. 

Currently on Special offer - scroll down for details

In total there are 29 elements within eleven sections of the toolkit. These sections (which are all colour coded for ease of use and reference) include Multi Agency Working, Pedagogy and Governance, as well as Management & Leadership, Marketing and the Early Years Curriculum. Each section covers the key areas that will support a centre in planning its journey to outstanding in all areas of children’s centre activity. It will also help your centre to meet the needs of your partners and users by helping you to fully develop your services based on the requirements of your local community. 

Now being used in well over 30 local authority areas, this framework was developed by practitioners within the London Borough of Harrow and is used as a practical self evaluation tool to help support the development of quality practice in all areas of the children’s centre core offer and beyond.

The framework also enables centres to audit their provision and develop action plans for continuous improvement through three stages of development for each of the elements within the framework and it can also act as an assessment and evidence tool in preparation for any form of audit (such as Ofsted). The toolkit can be used by all children’s centres whether they be school based, stand alone centres or run by partner agencies and we also have access to a network of consultant mentors who can offer help and advice as you embark on your use of the framework.

The framework comes inside its own specially produced purple ring binder so that it is easily recognisable and as all of the development work has been done, in terms of production and design, it offers you the chance to save on the initial costs associated with a project of this size.
