Registrations close 27 August

3.30pm Tea and coffee
4.00-5.30pm Session 1: Dare to be Different for Early Year Professionals

Dare to be Exceptional: for Early Years Professionals
This seminar challenges the mediocrity of meeting minimum standards
and shaping people to be able to do a job instead of creating a person
who can change the world. Maggie inspires big thinking in a simplistic
and practical way and shows that anyone can be exceptional in their
chosen career provided they follow their passion and use their natural
abilities and talents. Our children deserve the best care and early years'
education possible - this seminar will have you and your team inspired
to be exceptional. (Linked to the EYLF - Belong, Be and Become)

5.30-6.00pm Tea, coffee and finger foods

6.00-7.30pm Session 2: Sandpit to Adulthood:

Helping Todays' children to Thrive
From the Sandpit to Adulthood: Helping Today's Children to Thrive
Every parent wants their children to thrive - to grow up happy, healthy,
strong, kind and capable of realising their full potential. In this seminar,
Maggie explores the 10 keys to parenting that support this goal. She
acknowledges there is no "perfect" and that challenge, adversity and
failure can actually help our kids grow stronger and smarter.
