Our 69th Annual Seminar and AGM takes place on the 08 November at the Engine Shed in Edinburgh.

The theme for the seminar is ‘Making Scotland the best place in the world to grow up: the role of childcare in helping us achieve our ambition’.
Aileen Campbell MSP, Minister for Children and Young People, will be speaking about the role childcare can play in helping us make Scotland the best place in the world to grow up and the vision the Scottish Government has for childcare as part of the infrastructure of Scotland.
Claire Telfer from Save the Children will be speaking about the messages from parents based on the childcare conversations they held around Scotland.
Naomi Eisenstadt, Senior Research Fellow at Oxford University and former Director of Sure Start will be speaking about the role of childcare in supporting children and parents.
