The Nursery World Business Summit is back live and open for bookings

Friday, November 12, 2021

The 8th Nursery World Business Summit: Building for the Future is on 8 March 2022 and features expert speakers from Ofsted, nursery businesses, consultancies and think tanks.

Ofsted chief inspector Amanda Spielman will be part of a great line-up of presenters who will tackle the big issues, dispense advice and give you food for thought.

The past year has continued to be extremely challenging for the early years sector, but many nursery businesses have proved to be strong, adaptable and dedicated to supporting staff, children and families. The childcare market has seen very high demand from nursery buyers, confident that expansion can continue.

Now the sector is looking to the future, as the Government’s early years recovery programme swings into action, along with extra funding pledged for the free entitlement. Early years settings need to prove they are taking action to be diverse and inclusive, eco-friendly operations where well-being can flourish.

It’s time to make sure your business is equipped to survive and thrive in an environment that has changed radically and will continue to do so.

The conference includes:

  • Ofsted chief inspector Amanda Spielman with an update on early years inspection
  • Children and Families Minister Will Quince on policy priorities for the early years sector (invited)
  • Focus on policy and public spending from Christine Farquharson of the Institute for Fiscal Studies
  • The CACI team on the latest demographic data that can inform your business strategy
  • Progress with the Level 5 Early Years Lead Practitioner Apprenticeship
  • Expanding your business without compromising quality, with Jo Caswell and Kate Peach
  • Perspectives on the childcare market from Sarah Steel of The Old Station Nursery Group and Fatima Essoufi of parent company La Maison Bleue
  • Supporting diversity and equality in your nursery business – insights from Liz Pemberton
  • Top tips for going green with London Years Foundation’s June O’Sullivan and Nick Corlett
  • Making well-being a priority – Ruth Pimentel and Annie Tierney on Kindred’s Healthy Steps Initiative
