The Childcare & Education Virtual Summit is back and bookings are now open! Get ready for a speaker line-up consisting of innovators, experts, creatives, educators, trainers and people simply passionate about the early years and primary sector.

Going live on the 19th September 2020, the Virtual Summit is bringing you seven incredible seminars on the day, three pre-event seminars (we hate to keep you waiting), an interactive discussion with three of the leading names in the sector and exciting Q&A sessions! You’ll even get your hands on a CPD certificate for no extra cost.

Tulip Siddiq MP, Shadow Minister for Children and Early Years is opening the event as the keynote speaker, followed by the first talk of the day from the inspirational Sid Sloane, actor, writer and former CBeebies Presenter. Sid will be sharing his wisdom on the importance of reflecting and how we can share our stories from an empowered perspective and have the confidence to help our little ones do the same.

Debating the future of the EYFS in an interactive discussion will be Neil Leitch, Chief Executive at Early Years Alliance, June O’Sullivan, Chief Executive at London Early Years Foundation and Liz Bayram, Chief Executive at Pacey. The talk offers a chance for the important topic to be explored and an opportunity for the audience to impart their opinions and questions. Audience members will also get the chance to interact with the event speakers during a 40 minute Q&A session.


As always, the event promises a diverse range of topics to suit all interests, including how to be a pedagogical leader, using fiction to develop phase 1 phonics, race in early childhood, outdoor learning & forest schools and so much more! Check out our full list of topics here.

It wouldn’t be a Childcare & Education Virtual Summit without some amazing free resources. Resource Sponsor Widgit will be providing every attendee with over 50 pages of back to school resources, to help prepare you for a new, socially distanced academic year. Speakers will also be sending out offers and attendance to the Virtual Summit means you’re entitled to a free seminar at one of next year’s live Childcare & Education Expos!

Supported by Morton Michel as the Virtual Summits Platinum Sponsor, the Childcare & Education Virtual Summit is certain to leave you inspired to practice new innovative ideas in your own settings.
