Ternity Group National Conference 2022 in Partnership with Xplor Education

“Through the eyes of a child – respecting a child’s sense of agency and belonging”

Ternity is the group behind Nourish BabySafe Sleep Space and Sleep Smart and in partnership with Xplor Education our National 2022 Conference, brings you an amazing line up of credible and well-respected speakers.

After two years of pandemic conditions we will finally gather face to face, with live streaming also an available option.

As Magda Gerber famously quoted “Let the child be the scriptwriter, the director and the actor in his own play.”

Having a sense of agency for a child in the early years is very much linked to a sense of belonging.

This sense of belonging thrives when a child has trust in the adults around them and the environment in which they are cared for.

Developing such a trusting bond with infants and children is vital and when we listen with respect to children’s voices, their words and their ideas, we enhance this trust, showing them that they are heard.

Listening deeply, being present and being willing to see the world through the eyes of the child are just some ways of respecting a child’s sense of agency.
