At the Childcare Expo in London we were proud to host the very first of our Famly Sessions. A free event series designed to bring together people from across the early years sector as we believe that quality CPD should be freely available to everyone!

Please note: here at Famly we love sharing creative activities for you to try with the children at your setting, but you know them best. Take the time to consider adaptions you might need to make so these activities are accessible and developmentally appropriate for the children you work with. Just as you ordinarily would, conduct risk assessments for your children and your setting before undertaking new activities, and ensure you and your staff are following your own health and safety guidelines.
