Wednesday 19 August, 14:30 BST

Join us for the next NMT Discussion on Wednesday 19 August at 14:30 BST.

Blossom Educational was established to create a platform that reduced the amount of paperwork for practitioners, allowing them to spend more quality time with children.
No nursery wants to be spending too much time on administrative processes when they could be working with children and growing their setting. With social distancing becoming the ‘new normal’, nurseries are having to adapt the way they communicate with parents and track a child’s development.

Blossom Educational software is built by early years experts from across the UK, using the expertise of owners, managers and practitioners to create a platform fit for all. During this webinar we will hear from Blossom Educational and a number of practitioners about how they are recovering from Covid-19 and how the platform has supported them.

We will be discussing children’s development, risk management, finance, marketing and much more.
After the panel discussion there will be an opportunity to ask our experts questions. This webinar is a fantastic opportunity for providers, suppliers and investors across the early years sector to engage with the present expert thinking during this pandemic.
