Connect with educators from all over the country to reflect on the success and challenges of the start of this year. Whether your program is in-person, virtual, or in a hybrid model, we hope you'll join our collaborative conversation as we discuss the following topics: building relationships with families, understanding learning at home, and establishing safe learning environments.
Given the stresses of the 2020 year, children are re-entering learning environments with new mental health and emotional needs. Whether in-person, hybrid, or all virtual, children and families are relying on us to create spaces of stability and comfort. Join us for an amazing week of inspiration, collaboration, and practical strategies to learn how you can best support your children, teachers, and yourself this new school year.
