Early Years Provision in Schools Masterclass

Written by: Pete Henshaw | Published:

A masterclass focusing on early years provision in schools is to form a key part of the Nursery World Show 2016.

The two-day event will include a morning-long session aimed at helping schools to achieve the best outcomes for young children through high-quality "enabling environments" and skilled and supportive practitioners.

Nursery World – which is a sister title to Headteacher Update – is hosting the annual conference and exhibition on February 5 and 6, 2016.

Among the speakers in the Early Years Provision in Schools – Policy and Practice masterclass, which takes place on the Saturday, February 6, from 9:30am until 12:30pm, will be Professor Tina Bruce CBE, a leading early years educator.

Prof Bruce will set out best practice underpinned by the principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage. As well as touching on her own pioneering work — the 10 principles of early childhood education and the 12 features of play — she will focus on the Froebel approach to early education and its continuing relevance to all early years settings today.

Elsewhere, outlining the current challenges and essential starting points for setting children on the path to becoming effective learners will be Dr Julian Grenier, headteacher of Sheringham Nursery School and Children's Centre in London and a National Leader of Education.

Also speaking will be Jan Dubiel, national development manager at Early Excellence and former QCA lead on the EYFS Profile, who will look at how to build a holistic picture of the child while meeting all "baseline" requirements.

A masterclass place costs £150, although early bird booking at £125 is available until December 4. To book your place or for more information on the Nursery World Show 2016, visit http://nurseryworldshow.com/
