Froebel Networks 6th Annual Gathering

Saturday 23rd April 2022  

'Froebelian Work - Local and National Connections'

Elm Grove Conference Centre
Roehampton Lane

London SW15 5PH

10.00am to 3.00pm

Elm Grove Conference Centre is located at the heart of the University of Roehampton in the grounds of the Digby Stuart Campus 

We are pleased to announce that our annual gathering will be taking place at the new Elm Grove Conference Centre, which is located within the campus grounds of the University of Roehampton.

This will be our first 'in person' Gathering after a two year break (both 2020 and 2021 were on-line) and a wonderful opportunity for all Froebelians to re-connect and catch up! And what a lot of re-connecting there will be. As such we have decided that the theme of the day will be Froebelian Work - Local and National Connections.


Tina Bruce will be chairing the day and has invited a number of well-know Froebelian speakers to talk about local and national connections through the varied networks they are involved with. We are also announcing some exciting plans for the growth of the Networks - so that everyone feels connected.

There will also be plenty of time to talk to the each other over coffee and pastries on arrival as well as at lunch-time, when we have have arranged a celebration cooked lunch - all included as part of the event.  

There will also be displays and stands. The Froebel Network stand will have the Gifts on display, which will also be available to purchase, along with other items and books. The Froebel Trust will have a stand giving information about the work of the Trust and selling the full range of Froebel Trust pamphlets.

For those who are unable to attend the Gathering in person, there is an opportunity to join the event via a live stream.

More about the Elm Grove Conference Centre:

  • Our gathering will be held in the impressive third floor Oak Suite of the recently opened Elm Grove Centre.

We will be moving up to the top floor  'Lime Tree Suite' for our lunch - with the chance to look out over SW15 and the City of London .

The Centre also offers overnight accommodation with 31 en-suite bedrooms - all bedrooms come with standard hotel amenities and complimentary Wi-Fi and are located within the Elm Grove Centre. These rooms are available to Network members  at a rate of £79 a night. A great opportunity to stay at Roehampton before or after the Gathering and walk around the grounds of Froebel College which is adjacent to the Conference Centre

The Froebel Network is grateful to the Froebel Trust for supporting this event so that we can meet in such lovely surrounding.
