After the success of the joint venture with Croydon Day Nursery Business Forum event in March 2017, Laura has decided to organise a twice yearly event, where we will share practice nationally and internationally, listen to expert speakers, hear from educators and receive updates on key national guidance and legislation.

Each delegate will receive:

  • the hub literature
  • copies of presentations
  • certificate of attendance

The event is being held in a plush training venue and refreshments will be served on arrival and also during the mid-morning break, giving delegates a change to network

Speakers and Content

The September hub, will have a focus on children’s and educator’s wellbeing, welfare and neuroscience.

How playing to our strengths can help staff and children flourish in Early Years settings

In her presentation, Linda discusses how positive psychology and a Growth Mindset can be used to develop a learning culture in Early Years settings that enables individuals to play to their strengths and bring their best selves to work.

Kim Benham
Outstanding and beyond

In this presentation, Kim will discuss how she continuously improves her settings, supporting staff to be the best they can be. She will also share the observation, assessing and planning methods that her team uses, how knowing
your safeguarding inside out is crucial, as well as the importance of quality continuous professional development. Kim will also discuss how she works in partnership with parents to support teaching and learning within the home

Dr Eunice Lumsden
S is for Attachment! Mindfulness in Early Childhood Education and Care

Our understanding about attachment has come a long way since the pivotal work of Bowlby and Ainsworth. For infants and young children whose care and developmental needs are partly met in ECEC, it is imperative that the environments, and those working alongside children and their families, are attuned to the importance of attachment. This session will support understanding of the latest developments in Attachment Theory, the consequences of early trauma and maltreatment and will enable you to reflect on and enhance your practice.

Investment for this event is only £35.00 + VAT

Status: Limited places available
