At Kids Planet we are incredibly focused on children’s interests being at the heart of everything we do. Our mission statement, “working together to inspire your world” was born out of this belief.

Best Practice Network is the leading Early Years Initial Teacher Training (EYITT) provider in the country with a 100% pass rate, our course is proven to raise the quality of a setting’s early years provision, be a core element of a practitioners development, and improve children’s life chances. Completing EYITT awards Early Years Teacher Status (EYTS).

This programme has been specifically designed for new graduates wishing to take the next step and begin a graduate career in Early Years; playing an essential role in nurturing children’s learning and development from birth to age five and training to deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage.

The EYITT programme is a blended programme consisting of:

9 face to face training sessions delivered at the Kids Planet training academy

Online learning to meet each trainee’s individual needs via our Virtual Learning Environment

Practical hands-on experience across Kids Planet and on a school placement

Observation and assessment of teaching and care across the 0-5 age range

A personalised training plan including reflections on workplace learning


First and foremost, we require someone who is positive and passionate and wants to work with children.

We don’t expect experience, but we do expect focus. Working in childcare is a profession and it needs to be treated that way.

Kids Planet is offering 30 places and graduates will have the unique opportunity to be taught by experts at Best Practice Network, while also gaining outstanding work experience through support and training with Kids Planet Academy whilst working in a variety of Kids Planet Day nurseries.

Kids Planet recognise the value and skills that Early Years Teachers add to the mix of dedicated Early Years professionals in our settings and we are thrilled to be partnering with Best Practice Network  to offer this opportunity to a number of passionate and talented graduates; providing a unique blended learning approach combining both theory and practice. We look forward to welcoming aspiring Early Years Teachers on to the programme.
