Join the 30th Annual Early Learning and Child Care Conference on Saturday May 5, 2018! This year our focus will be on Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics (STEAM), and the powerful connection and potential they play in early learning experiences. As an educational approach that supports thoughtful risks, experiential learning, creative problem solving and collaboration, STEAM education is a perfect fit for today’s early learning environments. It allows us to build on our image of young children as innovators, leaders and learners of the 21st century by weaving science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics throughout our programs and guiding children’s inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.

Conference includes panel presentation, expo, workshop and facilitated summary.

STEAM concepts are often associated with older children or school years, but all children are born with a natural curiosity that allows them to interpret and make sense of the world around them. How do we continue to support the scientific mindset of infants and toddlers? This session will focus on fostering early concepts of STEAM through natural exploration, play and inquiry for infant and toddler programming.

From infancy all the way though school, children crave opportunities to express their learning in new and exciting ways. Integrating arts into STEM is a trend that is taking hold as educators recognize the important role the arts play in bringing learning to life. In this collaborative session, we will unpack the power of arts in relationship to learning that supports higher engagement through creativity and collaboration. Get ready for some art inspiration for both you and the children!
