Early Years Conference

August 31


The close community presents a single day event of love and connection, with inspirational speakers who will interweave the science of connection through storytelling and their professional experience, offering you invaluable insight and provoking your curiosity as you support the development of children and young people.

Our Early Years conference: The impact of love on the developing brain, aims to bring together practitioners, educators, policymakers, and individuals (across a variety of sectors), who have a personal or professional interest in early childhood development. We will explore the impact of trauma on the developing brain and the power of loving, healthy, emotionally available relationships within the lives of our children and young people.

We hope you leave our event feeling curious, courageous, and inspired to place the Attachment needs of our children and young people at the heart of your practice and relationships. We hope that by sharing the knowledge of the biological impact of relationships we increase our capacities to ‘Get it Right’ for every child in Scotland, and wider.
