:: Play, Learn, Achieve: Maximising Children's Learning Potential in Early Years ::
Outline
This conference will focus on the importance of supporting children's learning and development through purposeful play to maximise achievement and is a must for teachers and Early Years practitioners working with children aged 3-5 years in Nursery and Reception classes. Award winning author and lecturer Mine Conkbayir will share the importance of understanding neuroscience and the implications on early childhood practice. Ben Kingston-Hughes, the director of Inspired Children, will highlight the importance of play not just from a developmental perspective, but as a therapeutic process that can profoundly impact children's self-esteem, confidence and mental health. Delegates will be able to attend engaging, thought provoking and practical workshops throughout the day that will provide the opportunity for further reflection, reviewing strategies and activities to take back to the classroom.

  • make connections between neuroscience and early years provision in supporting children's overall development
