Event description
Join the VCU School of Education in hosting the 4th Annual Evelyn Reed Symposium.

About this Event

This year's theme is Transitions. We will focus on children’s and families’ experiences transitioning from early intervention, to preschool, to kindergarten, as well as transitions across the daily routine. Through panel presentations, concurrent sessions and opportunities to connect with area agencies, VCU students and faculty and Symposium participants will learn about ideas and available resources for supporting successful transitions for the early years of birth through age 5.

This event is free and open to the public and lunch is included with advanced registration.

As the Symposium is on a Saturday, street parking around VCU and the Academic Learning Commons building is free. Alternatively, Symposium participants can choose to park in the West Cary Street Parking Deck (http://www.maps.vcu.edu/monroepark/carystdeck/) located at the corner of Cary and Harrison Streets which requires an hourly fee ($10 for duration of full Symposium).
