Let Me Be Me: Conversations about the ‘Unique Child’
The 2010 Early Years Conference is taking place on Wednesday 16th June 2010 at Edge Hill University’s Ormskirk Campus.
The theme of this year’s event is the ‘unique child’, following on from last year’s successful theme of ‘playfulness’. The spirit of ‘Let me be me’ is inspired by the poet Peter Dixon, focussing on the need for space and time for children to explore their own unique responses to the world. This, in turn, allows them to be nurtured as independent, imaginative and empowered thinkers and learners.
As well as keynote presentations, the conference will include a variety of practical and interactive workshops that delegates can choose to take part in to explore this theme further. Keynote speakers include Professor Pat Broadhead, from Leeds Metropolitan University and Sarah Argent a freelance theatre director specialising in theatre for young people.
