Presentations are sought which address the areas of: program leadership, parent education and early childhood education. The planning committee would like to see a balanced program which examines current issues related to program standards, philosophy, practice, policy, local influences, new initiatives, current trends, leadership, customer service and more. The goal of the committee is to have a conference that will address the needs of current and future program administrators and practitioners.
Presentation topics may include but are not limited to; human resource issues, managing employees, emerging issues in the field, literacy, brain development, classroom environment, curriculum, indicators, assessment, inclusion, community partnerships, health support, cultural considerations, outreach, marketing, licensing, reflective practice, challenging family situations, mandatory reporting, legal issues, children's mental health, technology, early childhood screening and early childhood special education. We are also looking to have at least one workshop each time period that would fulfill the Parent Aware requirement of curriculum or assessment training.
