Perhaps you’ve already heard about the Northamptonshire Baby Room Project - we won the national Nursery World Award 2010 for Local Authority Early Years Team. Parents and practitioners say that doing the three sessions is awe-inspiring, practical and thrilling.

The practitioner course: three half day sessions, each a month apart fostering reflective practice.

Babies’ brain development; Babies’ Emotional Development; and Babies’ Playing and Laughing

Each session combines: Quizzes, DVDs, Group discussion, A baby’s journey, Making easy resources.

It is highly desirable that two people from each setting attend.
