Over 2,500 early years professionals are expected to visit Olympia London over the 4 & 5 March this year as Childcare Expo returns with another lively and vibrant show packed to the brim with imaginative ideas and ingenious products and services for the childcare community.
Whether you are planning to set up a new nursery, refresh your current setting or just looking to pick up a few ideas and items to add that extra zing, Childcare Expo is a ‘must visit’ event this spring for anyone working within the early years sector.
Amongst the top suppliers presenting the latest innovations for childcare businesses, there are some exciting new exhibitors to meet including ImagiDo!, Oaktree Designs, Bitzbags and Playbrush. The show offers a unique opportunity to talk face to face with suppliers and ‘have a go’ with products before you buy, something that catalogues and websites simply can’t offer. Alongside the exhibition, there is a fantastic mix of features to indulge the senses including The Childcare Company’s ‘Wild Place to Play’ zone which combines teacher led resourcing with child led activities. To feed the brain, there is an educational seminar programme over both days bursting with passionate speakers who can’t wait to share their knowledge and ideas to help support those in the ever challenging career of childcare. For a fix of inspiration, hands-on interactive workshops are offered as free drop in sessions with topics covering forest schools, phonics, messy play and more, they offer the perfect opportunity to engage in new areas or top up your knowledge.
