We are pleased to welcome two inspirational speakers to lead our morning conference:
Nancy Stewart is a skilled teacher, consultant and trainer with nationally recognised expertise in early year’s development and learning, and quality improvement in teaching and provision.
Nancy will focus on identifying and building on interaction strategies, making the link between talking and thinking and will share key practical strategies that can be implemented right away. Nancy will also briefly update us on the latest developments with the revised Early Learning Goals.
Anna Ephgrave has over 27 years’ teaching experience working for many years as an advanced skills teacher and most recently as an Assistant Head Teacher. She has led her Early Years’ teams to four consecutive Outstanding grades from Ofsted.
Anna will share practical and tested techniques that practitioners can use within child initiated play to support children’s communication and language development, focusing on relationships, wellbeing, confidence and resilience.
