South Eastern Northern Ireland

The South Eastern Northern Ireland Branch was informally launched at the recent Creativity Unwrapped conference on the 29th March 2019, at Stranmillis University College in Belfast. 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 launched 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.

We co-hosted the Creativity Unwrapped conference, with Anni McTavish, Debi Keyte-Hartland, and Pete Moorhouse, on Friday 29 March 2019 at Stranmillis University College in Belfast. This was followed by our Moving Outdoors conference in 2020, with Jan White, Clare Devlin, and Joan Henderson on Friday 13 March 2020, at Stranmillis.

Our upcoming events include:

Further details of our upcoming events to be confirmed in due course.
