The Famly Town Hall is a space for our customers in the United Kingdom and Ireland to come together and connect with Famly and each other and have the chance to hear from guest speakers and other Famly customers.

Held at least twice a year each Town Hall will have a different theme. In October the theme will be ‘The future of Early Years’ and our guest speakers will be presenting on topics related to this theme.

How long will it be?

The Town Hall will last for approximately 1.5 hours. Check out the programme below:

Opening Presentation - 7:05pm

Stories that can change the future of Early Years

Famly helps all of us tell stories every day, through the headlines of what children ate, how they slept, and through additional detail when messaging parents as well as on the newsfeed. These stories are gratefully received by both the parents and the nursery owners as they help form strong connections between home and nursery life. 

Stories can also be an incredibly powerful tool in forming strong connections across the sector and promoting a positive perspective on the incredible work that happens here everyday within the Early Years sector. 

In this talk, Lewis will share some of his own stories and will strive to leave you feeling motivated to take positive action and to operate with professional confidence to help inspire change from within the sector. 

Presented by Lewis Fogarty, Always Growing Nursery.
