(17 March 2020) To all IFS conference participants, colleagues and friends,
It is with regret that we announce the postponement of the 9th Biennial Conference of the International Froebel Society, which was scheduled to take place in June 2020 in Edinburgh. The IFS Executive Committee has taken this decision in view of the circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic. We plan to reschedule the conference for 2021, again in Edinburgh. The precise dates of the rescheduled conference and information regarding the disposition of previously accepted papers, etc., will be announced in due course. Those who have already registered for the 2020 conference will receive a full refund and should expect to be contacted via EventBrite.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has been involved in the planning of the 2020 conference, including all who submitted proposals and served as reviewers, our local conference organizers at the University of Edinburgh and the Edinburgh Froebel Network. We thank the Froebel Trust, too, for their sponsorship of the 2020 conference and their pledge of support for the rescheduled conference in 2021. In the meantime, stay safe and be well.
Kristen Nawrotzki & Larry Prochner, Co-Presidents of the International Froebel Society
