About Edinburgh and the Lothians Branch

The branch supports those working in early education in Edinburgh, East, Mid and West Lothian.  The work of the branch is supported by a committee of eight. 

The committee meets on a monthly basis and we organize seven events throughout the year. Most of the events are held in nurseries where people meet informally, view the playrooms and discuss current issues.  This is then followed by a presentation from a speaker. All employed people attending are credited with a CPD certificate. We hold one special winter event in Edinburgh City Chambers dedicated to a well respected member who died some years ago.

Our upcoming events include:

Further details of upcoming branch events to be released in due course.
