Early years conference - Vulnerabilities of babies and young children (0-3) in partnership with The Derbyshire Safeguarding Children's Board

A half day safeguarding conference delivered to early years practitioners to inform you of recent learning from serious case reviews in Derbyshire, involving babies and young children (0-3 years). This is an opportunity to gain good practice and update skills and knowledge from partner agencies, including early help and health visitor support around the vulnerability of babies and young children.

Vocabulary matters ‘closing the word gap’

This EYFS Network is based on a successful pilot project recently undertaken by several Derbyshire practitioners in response to the recent Oxford language report. The target audience for this is childminders and nursery and pre-school practitioners and will take place during March and April 2019.
