Event description

Description

This year our Little Chairs Conference's theme is Belonging.


What does it look and feel like when all children know that they belong in their classroom, that they are visible, productive, and respected members of a community that sees and appreciates them, while also holding them accountable to its members: a community that wouldn’t be that same community if they were not a part of it? A community that at it’s best they help create?

What does it look like and feel like when all families know that they belong? That they are important and that they can bring all of their identities with them, knowing that they add value to the community?

What does it look like and feel like when teachers and staff know and feel that they are valued for their creative, intellectual, emotional and caretaking work of making a school thrive? That they too can bring their whole selves and belong to a community where they have a voice?

What does a community of belonging look and feel like at the school or center, in the neighborhood, and at the larger level?

As a field, we are all uplifted when we feel and know that we belong, that we are thinkers and doers who can have a real impact in creating the world we want to see our youngest children thrive in.

We invite you our conference, Little Chairs Differences for a day to explore and experience belonging, for children, families, caregivers, teachers, community and ourselves.
