We would like to invite you to attend one of this year's BIRDtalks.
Every year we host a number of educational evenings where a special guest speaker will be at the nest to give a presentation about their specialist area of childhood expertise. These talks will showcase important ideas from the speaker's chosen discipline before opening the floor to questions from the audience.
These events are run throughout the year and family/friends are welcome to come along too.
See below for dates, times, locations and how to book your place.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call us on 020 8942 5779.
Kind regards The Dicky Birds Team
