Early Education Practitioner
My name is Emily Whalan and I am the Early Education Practitioner for Beckton and Royal Docks Children’s Centre. I work closely with the Newham Learning and Achievement team to help ensure that all registered Childminders are of a high standard, working with them from as early as registration and beyond. I also provide one-to-one support, training and guidance for Childminders within the local area. I am the point of contact for families seeking childcare; I offer advice and knowledge of settings. My role also involves promotion of the government funded free early education for 2 year olds. I am also working closely with the Local Authority to promote and develop awareness of the 30-hour initiative, which became effective in September 2017.
