Celebrating 20 years of NDNA

To mark 20 years of NDNA (receiving charitable status) we have slashed ticket prices and are giving you a fantastic choice of speakers at our 2018 early years conference, taking place on 22 June 2018 at Ricoh Arena, Coventry. 

We're once again offering both a leadership stream and a practice stream. Both streams will join together for an inspirational session with early years’ favourite Alistair Bryce-Clegg too! 


  • Leadership stream just £185 (including VAT) for members
  • Practice stream just £125 (including VAT) for members
  • Book two leadership places and get one practice place FREE.
