Knowsley Early Years Service and NSPCC – Early Years Development event

On Wednesday 2nd February 2022 (10 – 12pm) along with NSPCC and other Merseyside regions we will be launching an online event for Look, Say, Sing, Play.

About this event

The Look Say Sing Play (LSSP) Merseyside Campaign Steering group would like to invite you to the launch of a new Look Say Sing Play (LSSP) Merseyside Campaign.

At this virtual event, we will look at Early Years Development, what the impact of programme’s like LSSP is and how we can improve outcomes for children. We will consider the role all of us play in supporting families, exploring the LSSP messaging and providing an introduction to the resources available for parents and professionals to support conversations on this topic.

This event is free of charge and open to anyone working with children and families. It will take place on Microsoft teams and a link to join will be sent a few days in advance of the event.
