We held our second Tapestry Education Conference (TEC 2) in November 2019 with a focus on Changes in the Early Years Curriculum. The afternoon consisted of three table-top discussions led by members of the Early Years community, and for these we were joined by colleagues from Tapestry to record each conversation. Here, FSF and Tapestry’s Jack writes up the workshop led by Stephen Kilgour, Education Advisor and SEND outreach teacher.
