Early Years Scotland Annual National Conference: Diversity and Distinction in Early Learning and Childcare


The Early Years sector is a truly diverse and distinct one and in recognition of this, the 2022 Early Years Scotland Annual Conference offered a range of high-level speakers providing valuable input across a wide range of topics to support the interests of all those invested in our youngest children. Early Years Scotland is cognisant that ELC is offered in a wide variety of settings across the country and is committed to highlighting the diversity of provision within local authorities, private and voluntary settings.

Diversity has many dimensions, and our speakers presented content that supports the broadness of this across the ELC sector. Practitioners, children and families benefit when there is a shared, secure and positive understanding of how we meet the needs of all babies and children. Our speakers, Bruce Adamson, Mona Sakr, Khadija Mohammed and Shaddai Tembo, took participants on a journey across practice for our babies, toddlers and pre-school children.
