    October, 2020

    Early childhood educators work with children during one of the most critical developmental periods of their lives -- experiences at this young age are instrumental in shaping their future health and well-being. But what is actually occurring in a young child’s brain in their early years of life? How do environmental and social factors influence brain development? And what does this research mean for educators as they work to support children’s healthy and positive outcomes? This event focused on answers to these questions, and more!

    As the world continues to grapple with conversations around structural racism, diversity, and inclusion, our children are watching, listening, and learning. This event focused on creating inclusive, culturally responsive learning environments, supporting positive racial and cultural identity development in young children, creating equitable family partnerships, and advocating for a more equitable early childhood system.

    In the fall of 2020, many children began to re-enter learning environments with new mental health and emotional needs. This event focused on prioritizing teachers' mental health, strategies for creating stable and comfortable learning environments, trauma-informed care, understanding the impacts of COVID on children's mental health, and viewing behavior as a form of communication.

    May, 2020

    As early childhood centers and schools began to close across the country, it was glaringly obvious to educators that our country’s most vulnerable children were at risk. This event focused on strategies for supporting young children’s needs as we shifted to remote learning, adapting to the lasting impacts of COVID-19, and partnering with families to design re-opening plans.
