Childcare Expo London has announced a reputable line-up of education experts and leading early years specialists to give CPD seminars at the show when it returns to Olympia London next week on 1st and 2nd March.
Some of the biggest names in the sector are due to give talks at the show, including best-selling children’s cookery author, Annabel Karmel, Penny Fisher and Elizabeth Coffey from Ofsted, as well as our very own Melanie Pilcher. Seminar topics include supporting literacy development in the early years, nature pedagogy, leadership and inspiring staff, and the future of the EYFS. Early Years Minister, Nadhim Zahawi MP will also be opening the show at 10am, before giving a free keynote speech to visitors.
The workshop area will be filled with fun and creative sessions for visitors to get involved in throughout the two days – including a workshop from CBeebies’ presenter, Sid Sloane, who will run an interactive session about ‘Brain Health’, and will be keeping the crowds entertained throughout the day on Saturday 2nd March.
Childcare Expo’s most popular feature areas are set to return to this year’s event, including ‘Your Business Café’, which gives visitors the opportunity to get free professional advice from business experts, whilst sitting down with a free cake or coffee. Also coming to the London show for the first time is the #ChildcareExpoRocks area, where visitors will have the chance to let out their creative sides and paint colourful rocks to either take back to their settings, or go out and hide in their local areas for other people to find and brighten their day.
Childcare Expo London promises to provide visitors with lots of new ideas and inspiration to take back to their settings, as well as a host of competitions and special offers on all the latest resources from leading brands - providing a great day out for everyone working in the early years and beyond.
Doors to the show open at 10am on Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd March, and the first one hundred visitors on both days will receive exclusive free goody bags filled with exciting gifts from exhibitors. To get your free tickets today or for more information, click here or call 01425 838393.
