EYFS Support

The Totem Pole is a unique learning, development and resource centre created to meet the needs of Early Years professionals.  

Adapt Childcare Training & Support have recently acquired The Totem Pole to create a bigger, better, stronger training and support company for everyone working with young children. Together we offer a broad range of business support and training services to provide the most relevant, unique and quality enhanced training programmes to meet your needs.  A one-stop shop for training, covering statutory requirements, leadership and management, and inspirational CPD programmes.

Our training programmes and workshops have been created to meet the current challenges in Early Years. Reflecting the philosophy of Active Learning as the most effective way of learning, they provide a balance between activity, discovery, resources, information and discussion. Using a range of demonstration areas we role model Best Practice in the setting and classroom environment. 

We recognise that many professionals spend their day educating and caring for children and so offer twilight and weekend programmes. We offer a unique consultancy service covering training and resource provision tailored to individual needs.


At The Totem Pole we offer a broad range of open ended resources that can be creatively used throughout settings, schools and homes, both indoors and out. Our resources support the six areas of learning from the EYFS and beyond, encouraging children to learn through real experiences.
