Early years conference 2018 opened its doors in London today with early years practitioners from across the country congregating to network and share best practice.
NAHT general secretary Paul Whiteman opened the conference by outlining the importance of working with government to ensure children are given the best opportunities from the start. Paul said: “To find solutions, we must develop strong relationships”.
With a particularly impressive line-up of keynote speakers peppered throughout the day, delegates listened to rousing speeches from Nadhim Zahawi MP, Ofsted’s Gill Jones HMI and national leader of education and head teacher Julian Grenier.
From making maths fun to developing self-regulation at nursery – no one ever said being an early years practitioner was easy, which is why our conference workshops were packed-full of practical resources and content for delegates to take away. Delegates were treated to a host of workshops covering a wide variety of subjects, including:
- Supporting learning at home
- Making maths fun with Messy Maths
- Developing self-regulation in children
- Broadening the quality of outdoor learning
- Identifying children with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties
