In less than three months’ time, Olympia’s doors will be opening to all those working in the early years, childcare and nursery sector as they return to Childcare Expo London for its second year on Friday 6th and Saturday 7th March.
Registration for the event which exhibits the latest innovations for the early year’s sector opened late last month. It has already attracted hundreds of visitors with over half of those registering booking onto one or more of the educational seminars taking place during the two day show from speakers including Dr Marion Nash, James Hempsall and Gail Ryder Richardson.
This year’s event will feature an interactive area designed by leading educational resource supplier TTS. The hands-on zone will give practitioners ideas for enhancing learning opportunities and raising attainment to ‘Narrow the Gap’ for disadvantaged children.
There will also be free hands-on workshops taking place throughout the event for visitors to get involved in and pick up ideas for their own settings. Jo Baranek from the NDNA will be leading a session on ‘Magical Mark Making’ providing ideas for mark making both indoors and out. Sarah Cressall from The Creation Station will be looking at low cost creative ideas to help inspire children’s imaginations and Natasha Gavin, founder of I Know Why It’s Yum Mum will be joined by Nanny of the year Paula Vekony as they make ‘Magic with Fruit and Veg’.
Entry into Childcare Expo and the hands-on workshops is free and seminar sessions cost just £12 when booked in advance and £15 when booked at the show. For more information about Childcare Expo and to register for your free tickets please visit childcareexpo.co.uk.
