Have your say as James Hempsall and Jan Dubiel hold an interactive session to consider a 10-year vision for early years education and childcare – what would good look like and what actions would be useful to get us there? James and Jan will explain the hey! mission and set the Summit conversation into context, asking our audience to play their part.
Part 1: Arun Kanwar analyses the UK nursery M&A market – what are the prospects for buyers and sellers in turbulent times? Part 2: Jean-Emmanuel Rodocanachi gives an international perspective from Grandir, which operates more than 1,000 centres in Europe and the USA, and has acquired UK brands including Kiddi Caru, Three Little Birds and Magic Nurseries.
Intergenerational care: shaping the future for all ages
Recent years have seen increasing interaction between young and older people, particularly through nurseries and care homes. As we recover from Covid, more and more providers are keen to promote meaningful mixing, including through the co-location of care homes and nurseries. Denise Burke will explore different models of intergenerational care and explain the business and social benefits. Her presentation will include a case study video from Olea Care where Fernbees nursery is co-located with Fernlea care home in Stockport.
