More about our speakers

Nancy Stewart

Work on your CPD with a free talk from early years figurehead Nancy Stewart. Nancy was a key advisor on the EYFS review in 2012, and having led the rationale for the Characteristics of Effective Learning, went on to co-write the updated Development Matters with Helen Moylett.

At The Famly Sessions, Nancy will be speaking about:

Are we counting what really counts? – Keeping an eye on what matters for children

The talk will cover the What, Why, and, How of assessment. Nancy will explain the central importance of the prime areas and characteristics of effective learning, and give actionable ideas for how adults can use positive relationships and enabling environments as their two ‘toolboxes’ to make a difference.

Naturally Learning

Get inspired on how to improve your assessment by the team at award-winning Naturally Learning. The five-setting group based in Cornwall have their own unique pedagogical approach focused on holistic, sensory environments where child-led learning comes first.

At The Famly Sessions, the team from Naturally Learning will be speaking about:

How we do assessment at Naturally Learning

The team from Naturally Learning will talk all about their pedagogical approach, and how they approach the tricky subject of assessment in their settings.

What are the Famly Sessions?

The Famly Sessions are all about bringing together people from all parts of the early years community to learn from outstanding speakers and one another.

And who are Famly?

Famly make better nursery management software. We help hundreds of providers across the UK to streamline the tedious admin and paperwork that comes with running a nursery. But don’t worry, this event isn’t about selling us – it’s all about you.

Do I have to be a Famly customer?

Nope. The event is open to anyone working in the early years, whether you’re a Famly customer or not. You’re all welcome.

How many spaces are available?

The hall seats around 80, with standing room for more after that. As this is a free event, we can’t reserve entry for anyone – if we’re full then we’re full. You’ll be admitted on a first-come-first-serve basis, so make sure you’re there nice and early.

Is it really free?

Uhhh, yep! You won’t have to pay a thing. We truly believe that high-quality resources and CPD should be available to all (if you don’t believe us, check out our blog). That’s what the Famly Sessions are all about.
