Spectacular Show12 Mar, 2015
Started with Sam
Childcare Minister Sam Gyimah kicked off Childcare Expo London last Friday with his opening speech where he welcomed visitors and commended early year’s professionals for “shaping the futures of the next generation”.
The Minister went on to say “at the heart of this event are lots of things that make a difference to how childcare providers help children develop, stimulate their imaginations but also help them enjoy childhood, which is after all what it should be about”.
The show was a hive of activity as visitors, exhibitors and speakers came together to bounce ideas off each other and find out what was new in the sector. Many of these ideas were captured on the Ideas Wall as everyone took part in sharing tips and tricks and recording their thoughts on where the sector currently is and where it is heading.
Tired Feet & Heavy Bags
After two busy days of trying out resources, discovering innovative services and collecting ideas to take back to their settings, early years professionals left the exhibition with tired feet and heavy bags full of goodies from the show. Find out who came and enjoyed the show on our Twitter and Facebook pages.
Childcare Expo will be back to London Olympia again next year on 4 & 5 March 2016 but there is no need to wait a whole year as the show will also be taking place at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry on 25 & 26 September this year. Thank you to all the visitors, exhibitors and speakers who made the show fantastic and we look forward to seeing you all again soon.
