Event description

Description

The team behind Firm Foundations is proud to present our second early years conference - "Joining the Dots" - which is being run in conjunction with Bath Spa University and REaCH - the Centre for Research in Early Childhood, based at Bath Spa. The conference will explore all aspects of best practice in the early years. Keynote speakers and workshop leaders will examine and challenge conceptualisations of early child development. They will draw together policy, research and practice to call for a rounded and holistic approach to young children’s care, learning and development. This conference is designed to be an inclusive practitioner led event, focused on sharing ideas and building supportive networks.

The ticket price includes lunch and refreshments, and there is free parking at the venue. Any profit from ticket sales will be donated to The Bristol Children's Hospital.
