Childminders Conference at Pen Green   9 comments

It is not often that I write a blog about forth coming events – as of course usually I write about events that I have attended.

However this conference t Pen Green has been brought to my attention, and I wonder how many people know about it.

So I promise I am not on a sales commission, or being paid to write this blog – it is just information sharing

I hope to go myself and I have sent an email to book my place

So here are the details

Date: Saturday 21st March2015
Venue: Pen Green Research Base, Corby
Cost £75

For full details please click on the link

Pen Green Childminders Conference

If you have not heard of Pen Green – take a look at their website (access from the link above)

But for starters here is the information copied from their ‘About us’ page

Our Research Base was established to facilitate professional development and higher education courses for everyone involved in the Early Years Sector. Our students and delegates benefit from a unique education and research facility; we are based within one of the country’s largest children’s centres and have over 30 years experience running an integrated early years provision.

The Research Base has been at the forefront of early years research and training since we first opened in 1997. Since then we have developed our expert knowledge through the management and co-ordination of national and regional training programmes. We have built strong links with governments and national agencies; we have worked closely with the Australian, New Zealand, German and Malaysian governments and state departments in an advisory capacity, and we frequently welcome guest speakers and visitors from all around the world. Our portfolio ranges from the conceptualisation of high profile projects for the Department of Education, to the development and facilitation of our own unique training programmes. Our research team continue to produce relevant and engaging programmes and materials for early years practitioners, some of which are available for purchase on the website.

Maybe I will see you there?

  1. Thanks for the info Penny. Enjoy reading your emails etc

  2. I’ll be there, Ive booked x

  3. I’ll be there too, Penny, along with a few other familiar names from the forums (Saira Mortimer, Carol Hume, Denise Tupman are three that I know about) as well as Anne Hodgson who was with me at the Montessori day we met you at. Another CM colleague of ours, Belinda, is also coming with Anne and I. It sounds like it will be a brilliant day.

    • Fantastic – I am really looking forward to it now – as not only a great conference but a chance to get together with friends and colleagues who I have met before – and to meet new ones 🙂

  4. I’ll be there too Penny, along with a few other familiar names from the forums (Saira Mortimer, Denise Tupman, Carol Hume, that I know of already). I will be coming with Anne Hodgson who you may remember meeting when we all attended the Montessori day a while ago? Another colleague of ours, Belinda, will also be coming with us. It promises to be a very good day. Look forward to meeting you again Penny.

  5. Now I checked and checked again and that comment just didn’t appear so I typed it all over again! And now there it is lol!

    • Yes, it came through twice Helen! Never mind better twice than not at all

      However there is a delay, as I have to personally approve all posts (to stop spammers) and this means if doing something else there will be a delay.
