Early years practitioners to discuss childcare across the globe at world forum

Article By: Sue Learner, News Editor

Around 800 early years practitioners from all over the world will be sharing their ideas on childcare at next year’s World Forum on Early Care and Education.

The event will be held in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on 6-9 May 2014.

Laura Henry, national representative for England for the World Forum, is a big advocate of its benefits. She said: “Of all the conferences that I have attended, I have found the World Forum to be the most profound, informative and inspirational, with a massive positive impact on my practice.

“To be able to share ideas and connect with colleagues regarding their early years practice is indeed a privilege. I’ve met colleagues from India, Nigeria and Australia, to name but a few countries.

“I love the inclusivity of the World Forum and how one is able to share knowledge and passion with others within thought provoking workshops and working groups; including play, men in childcare, family engagement and leading early childhood programmes.”

Ms Henry, who is also director of Childcare Consultancy which provides training and education on the early years, added: “To me this is what is special about this conference; rather than being spoken to, everyone is able to contribute and share their passion in an area of early years that is dear to their heart.”
