University Centre Doncaster has played host to the forth Early Years Conference in outdoor learning. Programme Leader for Early Childhood Studies, Janine Ryan welcomed over 120 practitioners from the maintained, private and independent sectors to the High Melton campus in June.

Visitors enjoyed an inspirational keynote from Jo Gordon, of Mindstretchers, followed by a series of workshops such as ‘What Ever Happened to the Mud Pie’, ‘Fairy Garden’ and ‘Creativity Outdoors’.

Rachael, a Manager of a local outstanding nursery commented on the event, ‘The conference was a great success today. The staff in my team have been raving about the conference and have come back excited about the outdoors! One member of senior staff has already been out buying resources and making items for the garden, and another member of staff has brought in some food colouring from home to make mud paints and pictures’.

Janine Ryan, Programme Leader for Early Childhood Studies said, ‘The day was well attended and the feedback was really positive. The conferences are really beneficial in developing a Community of Practice in Early Years within the borough.’

The next conference on Speech, Language and Communication is on 29th November 2014. Please book early to avoid disappointment by contacting Katy Noble
