Join us for an afternoon conference for students, practitioners and researchers, and stay for the launch of ‘The SAGE Handbook of Early Childhood Policy’ with Professor Jane Payler.

Speakers include: Professor Peter Moss, Professor Helen Penn, Dr Alison Clark, Professor Eva Lloyd, Dr Guy Roberts Holmes and Dr Alice Bradbury




About the event:

Early childhood policy and practice in England is under pressure. It is dominated by an instrumental, economistic and positivistic narrative, expressed in a vocabulary of learning goals, school readiness, baseline assessment, investment and returns, and markets. At this afternoon event, to which you are warmly invited, we will debate alternative narratives with eminent researchers who offer different perspectives on how early childhood might be. Sessions offer opportunities to hear about and contribute to critical issues and themes such as participation, the impact of the market on access, international development, and measurement. Organised by the Thomas Coram Research Unit, the event promises to be a rich afternoon that will be followed by the launch of an important new book, ‘The SAGE Handbook of Early Childhood Policy’ where Professor Jane Payler (The Open University) will provide a short introduction.




Who is the event for?

Early childhood students on undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, researchers and early years practitioners and organisations representing early childhood practice and policy.
