Major early years conference set for Edinburgh

Early Years Scotland’s Chief Executive, Jean Carwood-Edwards, is one of the keynote speakers at a major early years conference in Edinburgh on 3 March.

The conference, hosted by Holyrood magazine, will reflect on the 7 years since the Early Years Framework was published, and will explore some of the key factors that can make a difference to long term outcomes in the early years.

Delegates will discover the latest research in attachment theory and practice and how it is being utilised in Scotland. In doing so they will consider what they, as practitioners, can do to build positive relationships with the children they work with and also how they can help families to enhance their own relationships and provide stability and security for those in their care. They will also hear the latest updates in childcare and early learning and consider how we can tackle health inequalities in the early years.

Jean will be joined by a number of keynote speakers including:

  • Fiona Crawford, Consultant in Public Health at NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and the Glasgow Centre for Population Health
  • Fiona McLeod MSP, Minister for Children and Young People, The Scottish Government
  • Laura Barbour, Early Years Programme Manager, The Sutton Trust
  • Tam Baillie, Scotland’s Commissioner for Children and Young People
