Childcare Expo 2012

The free event showcases an array of innovative activities, products and services designed to get early year’s professionals buzzing with ideas to take back to their settings. It takes place at the Ricoh Arena, in the Jaguar Exhibition Hall on Friday 28th - Saturday 29th September 2012

Childcare Expo 2012 will host the show’s best ever seminar programme, bringing more expert advice and knowledge about the issues that really matter to the early years sector. Book a place onto the seminar sessions to hear from headline speakers such as: Anand Shukla, Chief Executive Officer at Daycare Trust; Chris Barnham, Deputy Director for Early Years Quality and Standards at the Department of Education; Michael Freeston, Director of Quality at Pre-School Learning Alliance plus many others.

Due to popular demand ‘Play on a Budget Workshops’ will return this year! Packed with tips and tricks for creating activities with even the smallest of budgets, these sessions will help make any activity programme sparkle. From den building to outdoor learning, discover innovative ideas from top industry trainers such as Sue Gascoyne from Play to Z and Wendy Whittaker-Large from Elearvation.

The show will also host a range of other specialist feature areas including ‘Inspirational Themes’ which has been created by our partner TTS. With the land of the dinosaurs, the construction site, the space zone, a Pirate Island, a wizard’s workshop and even Santa’s Grotto, this area will excite the senses and leave visitors with a year’s worth of ideas to take back to their settings.

Whilst at the show, visitors are invited to ‘try and buy’ from a diverse range of early years suppliers and take the time to network with business partners, staff or other childcare professionals. For more information or to register for your free ticket please visit
