The Program

Join us for sessions, special events, networking, tours, and much more....all to inspire you!  There will be something for everyone whether you work in family child care, school-age, preschool or administration:

  • Attend as many sessions as you can and stretch your professional development dollar to the max!
  • Sign up for the special sessions and hear from leading experts in the field, including Sandy Slack, Gerin Martin, Margaret Nimmo Crowe, and more!
  • Take a Tour! See quality in action!
  • Spend time in the Exhibit Hall - your chance to get out of the catalog. Exhibits provide you with a chance to view the latest new products and discover vendors that can better support your programs.  Non-commercial exhibits will help you make connections to services and programs in the community.
  • Make connections as you socialize with other professionals during networking breaks.

Whether you are a newcomer to the field or an experienced professional, the Conference is a great opportunity to help advance our shared work on behalf of children during their most critical period of development and learning!
