Thursday 26 March, 9:30am – 3:00pm, Everglades Hotel, Derry/Londonderry
Early Years settings have a massive positive impact on children when delivered to quality standards. This is particularly important for children from disadvantaged backgrounds as they provide access to resources and experiences they may not have at home.
Importantly, quality provision can reduce the gap in development for children as they are settings which support children to reach their full potential in areas such as: social skills, independence, expected levels of behaviour in a school environment, communication and language skills, confidence and self-esteem. They also support parents by providing information relating to child development.
Guest speakers at the conference include Helen Moylett, independent early years consultant and writer and Nancy Stewart, teacher, consultant and trainer.
