Early Years Conference and Exhibition

June 15 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm



This one day conference and exhibition is aimed at practitioners working in early years. We are pleased to introduce key note speaker and workshop presenter Cassandra Wye. Cassandra has traveled the globe as a teacher, trainer and performer in the art of storytelling. You will see her in action during the morning and have the opportunity to develop your own storytelling skills in a workshop with her in the afternoon. For more information about Cassandra click HERE.

Returning to conference by popular demand is Julie Pickthall who will provide an update on the EHCO project that was started here in Gosport.

Afternoon sessions are hands on opportunities for you to develop your skills as a practitioner and include:

Woodwork with children – carpenter and teacher of carpentry Tracy Wood will discuss the benefits and risk of using hand tools and wood with children. You will use tools to make something to take away and could replicate in your own setting.

Gardening with children – Andy Curtis – professional garden designer and graduate from the British Academy of Garden Design will show us how to develop and support children’s understanding of growing plants. Be prepared to get your hands in the soil. You might win a garden to take home with you! For more information about Andy click HERE

Making Science FUN – Dr Stephen Morris will lead us through some exciting experiments using a range of materials and producing chemical reactions. Stephen will explain to us how we can develop children’s interests and language through fun ideas that we could safely do in our own settings.

Creating fire with children – In this generation of “helicopter parenting” many children are not exposed to risks such as fire. Using the forest school approach you will learn how to light a fire and maintain safety around a fire with children, You will discuss and identify opportunities to promote learning and development using the fire.
