WESTERN CHILDCARE PARTNERSHIP CONFERENCE 2018
The Western Childcare Partnership would like to invite you to a conference to look at Supporting Families on:
Thursday, 22nd March 2018 at 9:30 am – 200 pm in the Silverbirch Hotel, Omagh
Aims of Conference: Sharing Best Practice in Supporting Families
There are many factors that influence children’s development during the early years of life. Parents and families are central to the process as they are the child’s first caregiver, model and educator. Issues such as maternal & child health during and after pregnancy, the home environment, the family’s social and economic conditions and parenting styles during the early years will have an influence on the child’s development. So much so that consideration should also be given to the wider physical environment and the networks and structures that support parents in their role of raising happy, healthy, confident individuals. The early years and childcare sectors can do much to support parents with this role. This year’s conference is intended to share knowledge, information, ideas and best practice on a variety of ways the early years and childcare sectors can support parents and families.
