To celebrate Childcare Expo’s 10th birthday, CBeebies presenter Sid Sloane will be opening the show and providing entertainment for visitors.
Sid has decades of experience in children’s entertainment, and was one of the original presenters who launched the CBeebies channel in 2002. He recently founded children’s project, Roots4Kids, as a way of empowering children from low socio-economic backgrounds, so expect some powerful, motivating stories.
Sid is also hosting a free workshop focussing on children’s mental health on Friday 27th September and will be entertaining the crowds throughout the day, so be sure to say hello during your visit!
Alongside Sid, there are some great suppliers, innovative products, interactive activities, and a full two days of seminars designed to inform and inspire!
This year the seminars will cover a range of hot topics, from preparing for inspections, to motivating your team, creating environments for SEND children and much more.
Workshops include learning Makaton, designing with LEGO, using music to learn and loads of other fun interactive sessions.
Mrs Mactivity will be there too, showing visitors how to engage children with provocations and free play. Find the team at the Mrs Mactivity Activity Zone. Morton Michel will be hosting Your Business Cafe, where you can get free business advice from people with real industry knowledge.
There’s loads to do and see! So come and meet Sid, get involved, be inspired and enjoy the 10th birthday festivities!
