The revised Early Years Foundation Stage and Development Matters guidance aim to ‘reset’ priorities within early years practice to improve the quality of care and education for all children, but particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Together, the new documents seek to address the current focus on tracking and evidencing ‘next steps’ for every child and instead prioritise:

  • a broad and rich curriculum
  • progression in children’s learning
  • the learning needs of children most in need of support
  • conversation with children and language development
  • self-regulation and executive function, and
  • working with parents and carers.

Taking place over four consecutive days, you are invited to join a series of two-hour, live sessions between 4pm and 6pmMonday 9th to Thursday 12th November

Take a look at the programme.

We have also included a time slot each day for you to engage with (and learn from) a range of exhibitors who would like to talk about how their products or services can improve your practice.

This online conference will:

  • analyse current problems within early years practice
  • outline the rationale for changes within the EYFS and Development Matters
  • give guidance on curriculum planning and assessment, and
  • provide an insight into self-regulation and its importance in early learning and development.

This conference is designed for: 

  • Nursery owners and proprietors
  • Nursery and children's centre managers
  • Nursery practitioners
  • Headteachers and EYFS co-ordinators
  • Local authority early years managers
  • Early years advisers
  • Childminders
  • Healthcare professionals
