Childcare Expo set to go wild in Midlands
26th June 2016
Following on from the success of the launch of the first Childcare Expo in Manchester, sights are set on the return to the Ricoh Arena at the end of September. Exhibitors along with visitors are rolling up for the next event in the Childcare Expo calendar.
The popular two-day show for early years practitioners, will bring with it the admired and inspiring speakers that visitors queue up to hear from. Di Chilvers will be joining the line up to kick start the event on Friday 30th September after her sell out talk in Manchester on mapping children’s progress through the EYFS.
Followed on from Di Chilvers, Childcare Expo welcomes to the stage Jeszemma Garratt from Fatherhood Institute, as she discusses the ever-growing hot topic of men in the early years sector. Jeszemma highlights the issue of how only 2% of early years and childcare workforce are men and how we have to catch up with the social revolution as more parents are sharing the responsibility of raising their children.
The impressive line-up of thought leaders hosting enlightening seminars continues with our very own Bear Grylls, Robin Sheehan from eQeOutdoors as the topic of men in the childcare industry continues with the approach to getting children outdoors to learn and develop and how to measure the impact of wilderness therapy.
Childcare Expo Midlands sees new faces to the arena as Christina Dee from Forest School Learning Initiative and Sara Stanley from Philosophy Worlds grace Midlands with brand new talks exploring the introduction to the forest school ethos and the philosophical issues that children bring to their play and social interactions in the Foundation Stage.
This is just a dip in the water of what’s to come to Coventry in a few months’ time. To find out more information and to see the full seminar programme, click here.
