Our Projects

Men in Early Years (MiEY)

We are excited to be working with the Equality and Diversity in Education Fund, CTSA and Alban TSA to lead our Men in Early Years project. The project seeks to provide a support network for men in early years, to increase the number of male teachers and practitioners in the early years and retain these key role models in their professional roles. We hope to create an ongoing network of peer support where identified champions will be available for schools and settings to contact when recruiting men in early years to ensure they feel well supported and progress in their careers.

Matrix Maths Hub Hertfordshire

Acorns work closely with the Maths Hub to share best practice in Maths for Early Years. We provide valuable Maths Mastery courses as part of our professional development programme.  This course runs over three workshops in Developing Deep Mathematical Learning in Early Years. We are in our second year of running these successful workshops, and feedback has so far been excellent. Link to NCETM website
