Event description

Description

Join us for our inaugural conference: Transforming the Image of the Child

We believe children are competent and capable agents in their own learning. Join this inspiring group of early childhood educators as we reflect upon our image of the child and learn how these innovative educators are transforming their classroom practices to promote exploration, connection, and growth.

The conference will offer an interactive keynote presentation, three workshops (contained within one learning track) and an optional lunch & learn session. Participants will have the opportunity to earn 5.5 NC DCDEE contact credit hours if you attend the keynote and three workshops.

Included in your workshop fee will be a light breakfast. We are offering box lunches from Beyu Caffe for an additional $12. Your box lunch will include a sandwich wrap or a salad, cajun chips, a sweet pastry bite and bottled water or a drink. If you choose to purchase a box lunch we will contact you before the conference with the final menu. See sample menu below.

Participants will need to register for one learning track. Each track contains three hands-on workshops in addition to the keynote presentation.
