Argyll and Bute Council’s Early Years team is gearing up to host its annual Early Years Conference next month.

This year’s conference will take place on a virtual platform, from Tuesday November 16 until Friday November 19.

It provides an opportunity for early years professionals to come together to hear from national and international speakers, share examples of best practice and explore ideas.

The title of the 2021 event is ‘What’s love got to do with it?’ and the sessions will be based around the importance of a rights-focused, relationship-centred and play-based approach to education.

‘The Early Years Conference is a great opportunity for everyone involved in early years education to get together and share ideas and best practice,’ said Councillor Yvonne McNeilly, Argyll and Bute Council’s policy lead for education.

‘We are committed to ensuring our children and young people feel valued and we are incredibly lucky in Argyll and Bute to have such an amazing Early Years team which is committed to helping our learners grow and achieve the very best possible start in life.

‘The conference will be an inspiring, motivational event and I look forward to attending.’
