South Yorkshire branch event: Making Connections, Building Brains


The importance of physical, and emotional, safety in education and development. 

How do early, foundational experiences build our capacity for further learning and development? What role do relationships play in this?

In this session, Fiona will look at theories of interpersonal neurobiology and the relevance for early education, birth to 5 years. She will consider how these theories link to the development of key cognitive skills; considering how poverty and adversity experienced in the community can affect wellbeing. We will explore how this is relevant in these pandemic times and to all those working with young children.

Tuesday, 30 June, 2020
