Our Approach

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Programmes provided by Mosaic are hugely popular. The secret to Mosaic CPD is its uncomplicated format, enabling educators to refresh and up-skill in specific areas of pedagogical practice.

In a climate where early childhood care and education is continually changing, we believe that supporting and motivating management and educators to build on their practice, is fundamental to the provision of high-quality learning and care experiences for young children.

A tried and tested Mosaic delivery model adopts a practical, jargon free approach with high levels of transferable learning to practice outcomes. In everyday terms, when time is precious and tasks are high, this is what Educators need from CPD!

Mosaic programmes are underpinned by the principles and objectives of early childhood quality and regulatory frameworks – however, they are delivered in an accessible, common-sense style that enables educators to make real and sustainable changes and improvements to everyday practice.
