On Friday, he will be revealing what the superpower is that we all possess, in an up-lifting session that explores the power of play for children (and adults!). Join this seminar and discover why play needs to be an essential part of everyday life.

On Saturday, Alistair will be drawing on scientific research and his 30 years of experience in Early Years, to examine the concept of Continuous Provision. This highly educational seminar will show how, when it is well planned and resourced, it can be the key to high levels of engagement and attainment.
