At Childcare Expo 2012, June O’Sullivan will be leading the seminar “How to Ensure we Give Two-Year-Olds the Best Deal”. The session seeks to explore the impacts of the rollout of free childcare for two-year-olds from disadvantaged homes.
An inspiring speaker and regular media commentator on Early Years, Social Enterprise and Child Poverty, June has been instrumental in achieving a major strategic and cultural shift for the London Early Years Foundation, resulting in a significant increase in both profile and profitability over the past eight years.
Passionate about children's wellbeing, especially through equal access to the same high quality opportunities for learning, June is a champion of community-based, multi-generational projects and a great believer in the potential of greater social and cultural capital as a means of delivering long-term social impact.
Early Years Chefs
As CEO of the UK's leading childcare charity and social enterprise, June continues to break new ground in the development of LEYF's scalable social business model, whilst leading on the first National Standards for Early Years Chefs. At the same time, original member of Lord Wei's stakeholder group on the Big Society, June remains a tireless campaigner, looking for new ways to influence policy and make society a better place for all children and their parents.
Most importantly, June continues to work closely with the Department for Education in order to better implement their vision for Early Years, improve quality and promote better understanding of the incredible long-term benefits of play-based Early Years education for everyone.
Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, Director of Social Enterprise London and Trustee for the Daycare Trust and the National Day Nursery Association, June is a published author, with an MA in Primary & Early Childhood Studies and MBA from London South Bank University.
