Attended the East Lothian Early Years team annual conference in mid March and it was a truly inspirational event. It was chaired by Susan Deacon national early years champion and had two excellent speakers – Robin Balbernie and Suzanne Zeedyk. The early years team have now posted Robin Balbernies presentation on their edubuzz blog, if you couldn’t make the conference or just want to review the wealth of material that was in the presentation it well worth the time it takes.

Hopefully, the early years team will also be able to post Suzanne’s presentation – which had a number of video clips of very early baby parent interaction – but Suzanne was such a powerful and charismatic presenter I think you really needed to be there to get the full force of it.
