BookTrust Cymru Early Years Practitioner Conferences 2018

BookTrust Cymru are inviting early years practitioners, including childminders, in Wales to join them at their Early Years Practitioner Conferences this Autumn for lots of practical ideas and resources to use in your settings.

About the events

The conferences support early years practitioners to inspire families across Wales to enjoy books and read together. The conference will include a carousel of best practice with contributions from frontline practitioners from across Wales, a keynote speaker and a choice of workshops.  BookTrust Cymru will be exploring research and identifying new and creative ways of encouraging families to share books, stories and rhymes.

Conference delegates will also receive a Superbox pack on the day to take away and use with children in their care. The packs contain fun activity sheets and multiple copies of Bookstart books in Wales.

This year, BookTrust Cymru conference delegates will also be invited to attend a free follow-up workshop. Dates and venues will be confirmed later in the year.

There are two conferences being held.

  • Tuesday 16 October 2018 (09.30 - 16.00) - Springfield Hotel, Holywell, North Wales 
  • Wednesday 24 October 2018 (09.30 - 16.00) - Court Colman Manor, Bridgend, South Wales
