Annual Early Years Conference 10th March 2015

Tuesday 10th March at Kettering Conference Centre, Thurston Drive, Kettering, NN15 6PBKettering Conference Centre, Thurston Drive, Kettering, NN15 6PB

By Keynote Speaker Julie Fisher

This conference will examine the differing benefits of learning alongside an adult and learning independently.

It will consider how the role of the practitioner changes according to whether a learning situation is initiated by the child or initiated by themselves. Finally, it will explore the role of the adult when not directly leading the learning, and how effective practitioners undertake observations but remain responsive to children’s emerging needs and interests.

This is an excellent CPD and team training opportunity for early years practitioners, teachers and managers.
This event is FREE! Find out more about NNSP. Refreshments provided.
