Early Years Conference Summer 24

For Early Years Leads and their teams in schools, nurseries and early years settings (including maintained and Private, Voluntary, Independent) as well as childminders. Schools and educational settings only need to purchase one ticket but are welcome to bring their wider early years teams.

SAfE’s Early Years Conference, will delve into key themes of enhancing communication and language skills, fostering imaginative play, and creating inclusive environments for optimal support to disadvantaged pupils. Explore innovative strategies, share best practices, and hear from early years experts in how to nurture a foundation of growth, inclusion and creativity in your setting. Join us for an opportunity to build on your approach and make a lasting impact on the development of our youngest learners.

Guest speaker: Greg Bottrill (Can I Go and Play Now?)
