About the Midlands Branch 

Previously constituted as the Birmingham branch, the Midlands branch supports all those working in early childhood education in Birmingham, the Black Country, Telford and Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire and other neighbouring areas.

A new committee is currently being formed to plan events across the Midlands.  More details will be posted soon.

Upcoming Events

We generally have outside speakers but also run sessions delivered by our own members with particular specialist knowledge.  Meetings are held in schools and settings around the area.

Further details of our upcoming branch events to come in due course.
