NDNA Literacy Champions

Literacy is the lowest achieving area of learning for the early years 2015/16, you can make a difference to children’s literacy outcomes by joining our literacy champions programme.

NDNA's Literacy Champions nine step programme will ensure children in your setting are able to enjoy exciting, stimulating literacy experiences to develop a strong foundation for reading and writing.

NDNA's Literacy Champions programme will help to build the confidence and skills of your practitioners through structured activities and online training.

It is led by your 'champion' member of staff and builds your practitioners' confidence in developing and supporting your Literacy provision. It is initially a year-long programme, with the option to extend. 

Our Champions programmes are CPD UK certified, so they’ll count towards your continuing professional development too!


“As a result of the project we have completely changed the way we present many of our areas within the group rooms. The children really enjoy snuggling down and listening to a story. Quite often I look around and all the children have chosen to sit in the book corner and tell stories to each other!”
- Lara Duffy, curriculum co-ordinator, Crystal Childcare
