Event description

Description

This conference aims to promote inclusiveness, acceptance and tolerance and to combat the “-isms” of society through the exploration of our own biases and to carry back the insights gained from the conference into the work done within the early childhood community.

Special Keynote Speaker: Hedda Sharapan, from the Fred Rogers Company!

Hedda Sharapan began working with Fred Rogers 53 years ago on the very first taping day of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood on October, 1966. She has a master’s degree in Child Development, and over the years she has served as Assistant Director, Assistant Producer, Associate Producer and Director of Early Childhood Initiatives for his small non-profit company. Now as a Child Development consultant for the Fred Rogers Productions company, she is a script consultant for its highly-acclaimed PBS children’s series Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood and other projects.
