Early Childhood Curriculum, Assessment

& School Readiness Conference

Quality experiences in early childhood are essential for a child's later success in school.  As childcare providers, teachers, and professionals we are important to a child building a strong foundation.

But, where do we start? Are we providing activities and materials that support child development?  Do we have lesson plans and a curriculum we follow?  And if we do, are we looking deeper into our normal activities to see how we can improve?

Ready or Not, Here They Come is an informative, active, and engaging day of training that will help us answer these questions.  Come ready to learn, explore, and find new ideas for your family childcare home, center, preschool, afterschool program, or pre-kindergarten classroom.
