A major contribution to Froebelian education has been led by Yordanka Valkanova at Canterbury Christ Church University, working with a team of colleagues who have given solid and sustained support. From 2011, with a supporting grant from the Froebel Trust, conferences addressing different aspect of Froebelian educational approaches have been organised. The cost of attending could be affordable for practitioners because of the grant. Each conference is evaluated which helps in organising those that follow. Typically the conferences are attended by practitioners, students, head teachers and managers, academics and a few parents. They come from a wide area, including Cambridgeshire, Kent, East Sussex, Medway, Greater London, Surrey, Oxfordshire, Edinburgh, Japan and the USA.
