It was a pleasure to attend the reception at the St Lucian Embassy in London following the investiture of Michael Chastanet, who received his knighthood from HRH Prince of Wales. The reception was held in the presence of the High Commissioner of St Lucia, Mr Guy Myers, and Sir Michael’s son, prime minster of St. Lucia, Allen Chastanet.
It was an honour to represent the Early Years sector as a judge at the annual TES awards along with other esteemed colleagues.

A new online professional development FREE concept.
In short, think book club and then translate to online professional development.
Once a month we’ll read a research paper, journal, blog, article, legislation, guidance or social media content. We may also watch an inspiring video clip, for example.
We’ll then come together on my Facebook page, via a live Facebook post, to share our reflections and discuss translations into practice.
The link will always be free and Laura will share it at least one month before to enable participants to read and/or watch.
If participants would like a certificate for their professional development record, the investment will be £4.95 per certificate.

The first session will be on Tuesday 5th February at 7pm and Laura will circulate the link for the discussion in the new year.

I was delighted to receive an email from a group of students from Antwerp in Belgium earlier this year. They were carrying out research linked to Early Years and families. They wanted to know about my successful My Family Week and to meet with me in London.
Unfortunately, on the date of their visit, I was going to be out of the country and so I put them in touch with Kim Benham, owner and manager of Sparkles and Millie’s Pre-School, in Croydon. Kim’s settings took part in My Family Week last year and were also filmed by the BBC.
Please read Kim’s blog on the students’ visit.

We are pleased to announce the long-awaiting second book in Laura’s Jo-Jo and Gran-Gran series based on a pre-school child and her grandmother, showing the special and loving relationship that they have.
