Early Years Networking Groups
Meet other practitioners working in early years settings and develop your expertise to better support deaf children
We are establishing UK-wide groups of practitioners who work with children in the early years. The groups will meet four times a year to share knowledge, experience and good practice.
By joining a group, you will:
- develop your practice to plan and provide for deaf children who attend your setting, or may do so in future
- network with practitioners in similar roles
- receive training, expert advice, practical tips and resources.
Who these groups are for
These groups will be most helpful for practitioners working with children under the age of five, such as teachers, nursery workers, nannies, childminders and librarians.
You do not need to be a member to attend, however, signing up is free, easy, and allows access to resources and information. Find out more about becoming a member.
These groups will meet four times per year.
Our first meeting will focus on practical activities and strategies for improving the social and emotional development of deaf children. We will work together to share ideas and knowledge of this area, and come up with practical activities for you to implement in your settings.
We will be joined by a guest speaker who specialises in the social and emotional development of deaf children.
You have two dates and times to choose from. Both meetings will be held on Zoom.
- 25 January 2022
- 4pm to 5.15pm
- 27 January 2022
- 6.30pm to 7.45pm
The groups will be hosted by Mark Lowes, our Bright Start Programme Officer.
