About Sunderland Branch

Sunderland branch was re-launched in 2008.  There is a small committee of interested early years professionals who meet every six to eight weeks to plan the termly events.

The branch holds an event each term, between 5.30 and 7.00pm with a speaker and refreshments. Speakers are chosen for their appeal to a wide range of early years professionals and have included:

Phil Andre speaking about cultural diversity and multiculturalism,

Emma Pace and Chris Holmes speaking about the Sightlines Initiative early years projects,

Linda Lines, independent outdoors consultant, speaking about outdoor developments.
