Early Years Conference – Nurturing our Children: How a Loving Pedagogy Supports with Levels of Increasing Need in the Early Years

Led by Tamsin Grimmer

Children are arriving in our schools and settings with increasing levels of need, particularly in relation to Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED) and Communication and Language. As educators we seek to understand the many influences and factors that impact our children, in order to respond appropriately.

During this conference, Tamsin will explore how adopting a loving pedagogy and relational approach can address these needs through nurturing our children and promoting their wellbeing. Recognising all behaviour as communicating needs, this conference will help you to feel increasingly confident when interpreting children’s behaviour and supporting Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) and behaviour through positive relationships and mindful proactive responses and strategies. There will also be an opportunity to reflect on your own practice and identify strengths and areas for further development.

Audience: This conference will be useful for Early Years Leaders, SENCos and Senior Leaders.
