Wise Up Wednesday: Early Years In Edinburgh

Colleagues from the City of Edinburgh Council have shared news from their annual Early Years conference on the City’s Children and Families blog.

Over 300 delegates from Early Years establishments attended the at Hibs Stadium and Lesley McDowall, Quality Improvement Officer for Early Years, introduces a report from the event, with feedback from delegates. Dr Margot Sunderland from the Institute of Child Mental Health in London made a keynote presentation on “Working with Children with Difficulties and Challenging Behaviour” which seems to have made quite an impact judging by the delegate comments.

The conference also saw the launch of new resources to support literacy and health and wellbeing.

You can read the full report and see the photographs here.

Were you there? Why not leave us a comment to let us know what impact the day has had on your practice?

We’d love to hear more about what is happening to support the development of Early Years, Children and Families in other parts of the country. Have you had an event, shared some learning, or developed practice? Why not get in touch and share it with others?
