Find your local branch

We have volunteer-run local branches across the UK which organise meetings where you can hear a speaker, network with other local practitioners and, in the case of face-to-face meetings, often visit a local setting or school.  

Branch events are open to members and non-members of Early Education, with members getting free or discounted access.  

Click on a branch below to see their upcoming events and have the option to sign up for their mailing list.  Our events page shows a full listing of all upcoming branch events.

Welcome to the Northern Ireland branch of Early Education

The Northern Ireland branch combines two historic branches in the region, encompassing the North West and the South Eastern branches, to offer affordable and informative training for those working in the early years.

There has been a rich tradition and history of a branch in the area, with the original Belfast branch tracing its history back to 1937 (when first formed as part of the Nursery School Assocation). This newly combined branch for the region would provide opportunities for professional development as well as creating a network of support for colleagues in the area.

If you would be interested in joining the committee, or helping out informally with arrangements for meetings, please get in touch.
