"We teach them...They teach us"
For an exhilarating experience full of experts, knowledge and fun join us April 7-8, 2017 for UW-Whitewater's Early Childhood Conference. Our conference is a great opportunity for professional development and is great for networking with other professionals in the field of Early Childhood Education.
Presented by the College of Education and Professional Studies in conjunction with Continuing Education Services.
Dear Early Childhood Educators:
How can it be that it is time to invite you to Whitewater already? It seems like we were just here singing along with Okee Dokee Brothers, laughing with Bob Kann and being inspired by so many amazing speakers last year. Each year I wonder if we will be able to meet the caliber of presenters from the previous year and I believe that we have done so this year. We have a number of people who have been with us for many years but I am also excited to introduce you to many new presenters who bring their unique experiences and expertise to their presentations.
The theme this year is We teach them...They teach us.
Thank you for your continued work on behalf of young children and their families. Children matter, families matter, you matter and certainly the words we use matter and are important. Please join us in April as we continue to learn so that we can best meet the needs of the children and families we serve.
