Children’s well-being as a central concern: Implications for practice and policy in the early years

We invite you to join us for a day conference:

Children’s well-being as a central concern: Implications for practice and policy in the early years

Saturday 4 June 2016
University of Roehampton, Froebel College

The day will provide an opportunity for early years practitioners, managers, leaders, researchers, and those involved in policy making to come together, engage in dialogue, and make plans for action related to children’s well-being in light of current issues such as baseline assessment, technology in the early years, the emotional experiences of infants, musicality, pedagogic documentation techniques, and professional development.

We will have group discussions and research presentations by members of the Early Childhood Research Centre. These discussions will also be an opportunity to discuss how Froebelian principles can be applied to concerns related to children’s well-being in current contexts.

The following projects will be presented:

Teachers’ experiences of the Early Excellence Baseline Assessment, wellbeing as a part of on- entry-to-school-assessment; informative, formative or performative? – Mathias Urban, Sigrid Brogaard-Clausen, Sofia Guimaraes, Sally Howe, and Michelle Cottle

Technology and young children’s wellbeing: beyond the known and unknown – Fengling Tang

Loved or Listened to: Parent and practitioner perspectives on young children’s well-being – Sigrid Brogaard-Clausen and Sue Robson

The Tavistock Observation Methodology as a Froebelian practice – Peter Elfer and Sue Greenfield

Musicality and Musical play – Antonia Zachariou

Reconceptualising Professional Development – Valeria Scacchi

Using the techniques of pedagogic documentation to deepen our understandings and commitments to well-being – Suzanne Quinn and Michelle Palser
