Playtime National Conference 2019

Post image

Once again our Playtime national conference sold out months in advance! It was a fantastic day and we’re now looking forward to 2020. To guarantee your place in 2020, make sure you’re the first to hear about it by signing up here.

As toddler group leaders so much of our time is spent investing in others, thinking up creative ideas and trying to keep the momentum going. But giving so much of our time and energy can mean we don’t always get a chance to take a breather and reflect on what we’re doing.

The Playtime National Conference gives us that chance to take a step back, gather together and dream big for the year ahead.

This year we are excited to be bringing the conference to Wigan on Saturday 28 September. So join with hundreds of other toddler group leaders and helpers, and let’s gather momentum and continue making a difference in our communities.

On the day.

An extensive choice of workshops, such as:

– The importance of dads in toddler groups
– How do we respond effectively to a toddler’s difficult behaviour
– How to support parents in helping their children nurture a faith that lasts

Fantastic speakers such as Bob Hartman

Time to worship, share and pray together

Lunch and refreshments all included

An exhibition zone and shop packed with resources
