Why Should I Visit Childcare Expo?

Are you looking to top up your CPD? Source new play equipment? Discover new ways to engage and interact? Network with the outstanding community and receive support? The show has been adapted to the needs of the visitors following the overwhelming response from previous shows over the past eight years for best practice in childcare, EYFS and early years education. Alistair Bryce-Clegg will also be returning to the stage on Friday 15th June with his popular talk ‘A World of Endless Possibilities’. This is guaranteed to sell out so book your tickets today!

5 reasons why you should take time out of your busy schedule this year to attend the Childcare Expo event in Manchester:

  1. Alistair Bryce-Clegg returns to Childcare Expo as he cuts the ribbon at 10am on Friday 15th June before he takes to the stage. Alistair will be about all morning for catch ups and selfies. Limited seats are available for his seminar so book today!
  2. Brand-new for Childcare Expo is the Health & Wellbeing Zone. The zone focuses on the key issues that children along with practitioners are facing when it comes to health and wellbeing within three dedicated areas each created and hosted by experts.
  3. There’s a host of FREE interactive workshops taking place across the two days for you to get involved in. Essential early years topics such as physical development, mud kitchens and even mini yoga are guaranteed to leave you feeling inspired!
  4. Another new addition to the Childcare Expo arena is Your Business Cafe brought to you by Morton Michel. Chat over free coffee and ask for advice and support on anything from Employment HR, Staff Retention, Employee Benefits and any other business challenges you may be facing.
  5. And last but not least, the event is absolutely FREE to attend! Plus, there’s ample free parking outside and next door to the famous Trafford Centre too.


Attending Childcare expo reminded me that I am part of a much bigger and wider community of Early Years practitioners, that each and every one of us was passionate enough about what we do to travel to London off our own backs to improve the life chances of the children we teach. I would recommend attending, if only to remind yourself that you are not alone in this sector, that you don’t need to work in a bubble and that there are lots of people out there just as willing to get covered in glitter, pretend to eat a playdough cake, talk seriously to a puppet and sit on the tiniest of chairs as you are.

The quality and content was superb. Organisers were very welcoming and organised. Thoroughly enjoyed workshops and have already shared information with colleagues. Excellent variety of stands/stalls. Next time I will arrange to spend longer at the expo to experience the seminars. Many thanks for a super day.

On a recent visit to Midlands Childcare Expo I was struck by how differently I now feel towards the Childcare Expo brand and its events. As I am now a regular blogger for Childcare Expo, I felt very much a part of the team and I almost felt a little bit important (though very much a small fish in a big pond) as I walked around and spoke to people whom I have previously networked with thanks to these fabulous events!
