Keynote Speaker

Dr Jools Page is a Senior Early Years Lecturer in the School of Education at the University of Brighton and co-leader of the Children and Young People’s Voice and Education Research and Enterprise Group. Before taking up her academic role, Jools was employed in both early years policy and practice roles. For over three decades she worked closely with young children and their families and it is from these humble beginnings that Jools maintains she first gained her unique insight into the importance of fostering careful, respectful, reciprocal and genuine relationships between children and their key adults in professional early years contexts.

Jools is committed to research and practice that places the rights of babies, toddlers at the centre and it is this view of young children which inspired her academic research on attachment-based relationships between adults and children under three years in group day care provision. In a life history study which sought the views of mothers on going back to work when their baby was under a year old, Jools coined the phrase ‘Professional Love’ to explain the attachment-based relationships between infants and their professional adult caregivers.
