National Early Years Conference, 2nd March 2022
A child whose fifth birthday falls in the summer of 2021 will have experienced more than a quarter of their life in the shadow of coronavirus. A generation of children are entering school believing the protocols and limitations that characterise our daily lives are not a new normal, but the only normal they have known. What is more, we know the impact of the pandemic has fallen disproportionately on marginalised and disadvantaged families. At a critical time in a child’s development, a generation of children may have their future life chances significantly affected.
In this context the debate about changes to the statutory requirements in the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage), in particular the Educational programmes, becomes even more crucial. Now is the time to re-think what constitutes an effective curriculum. One that keeps child development at the core of supporting the learning and development needs of all children, regardless of background or circumstance.
This conference will bring together some of the country’s leading Early Years specialists to share their first-hand experience, knowledge and expertise to explore important aspects of Early Years provision, including the changes to the statutory requirements in the EYFS and what constitutes an effective curriculum.
The programme of keynote addresses and workshops will provide delegates with the opportunity to explore the important interconnections between child development and a responsive curriculum matched carefully to children’s needs.
This timely event is for everyone working in the early years sector interested in child development and creating an engaging and effective curriculum that keeps child development at the core of supporting the learning and development needs of all children, regardless of background or circumstance.
