Yesterday I had the great pleasure of being the opening speaker at the National Day Nurseries Association 2018 Conference in Coventry.
The NDNA do such brilliant work. It was a privilege to have the opportunity to work with them.
My Keynote was called ‘Inspiring Children to Learn’ and my challenge was to try and fit all into 45 mins. Unfortunately, I didn’t manage it. But, we only overran by a little bit!
One of the things that I talked about was how we can all work to equip children with ‘School Readiness’, although I am not entirely sure anyone has decided exactly what that is.
Here were my thoughts on ‘READINESS’
I reckon if we can create environments and opportunities that help to empower children with all of the above then they will be ready for anything the world has to throw at them – never mind school!
Enjoy the sunshine….
