The outdoor provision particularly supported the learning of the boys in the setting.He has an excellent rapport with teachers providing practical suggestions and direction. He is most affable and approachable and I can strongly recommend his services to anyone who requires a hands on, child centred approach to delivering the EYFS curriculum.

Terry has worked closely with all of our EYFS team this year, supporting every aspect of their
work. The results have been outstanding and we are now justifiably proud that we have some
of the best EYFS provision in the city. He communicates well at all levels, is full of good ideas,really understands what is good practice and knows how to motivate practitioners to give of their best.
Jane Gornell -Head teacher ,Old Hall Drive Primary School
Terry is without doubt one of the most inspirational people in Early Years. In particular his
passion for understanding how young children can engage with technology has led to more staff in settings finding ever more creative ways to engage children in learning. The result ... more young children than Terry can ever know will have benefited from his training and consultancy.
His humour, insight and easy manner always help people feel they have come away with
something a bit 'extra' once they've spent time with him. One of the few people I always look forward to having time with.

Rhiannon Egerton Director - Etch Training Provider London
Thank you for a wonderful day at Chancellors on your EYFS outdoor learning course. We really did get a lot from it. The work has begun on our outdoor area, which should have been increased over the holidays giving us a lot more useable space. We have enough funding left to put in a bike track and fit an interactive whiteboard in the Nursery but will have to apply for more money to further improve the outdoors. However, after being on your course, we have lots of ideas on how to improve the children’s learning outdoors which we can implement fairly cheaply and almost instantly.
