Over 1300 at our Early Childhood Conference

More than 1,300 educators, parents, and community members will attend the 51st Annual Early Childhood Conference, hosted by East Tennessee State University’s Center of Excellence in Early Childhood Learning and Development and the Office of Professional Development. The event will be held July 28-30 at the Millennium Centre. A variety of programs and events will be held, including presentations such as “Rock, Rhyme, Write, and Read” by Dr. Jean Feldman; “Facilitating Toddler Self-Regulation and Problem Solving: Powerful Strategies and Promising Practices” by Dr. Lissy Gloeckler; and “Forming a Firm Foundation with Foldables®” by award-winning educator Nancy Wisker.

In addition, Ellen Galinsky, author of more than 40 books, including Mind in the Making: The Seven Essential Life Skills Every Child Needs and also the President/Co-Founder of Families and Work Institute, will give a keynote talk on Thursday, July 28, from 7-9 p.m., that answers the question: How can families and teachers give kids the life skills they need to cope in our multitasking, multimedia, modern world? The lecture is open to parents, educators, and members of the community. The first 200 participants will receive a copy of the book Mind in the Making.

This was an incredible conference. Dr. Jean was great on Thursday during the Pre-Conference. I am a kindergarten teacher and there was so much offered. I have to say my favorite mini session was the Foldables. I would love to see them bring her back to Pre-Conference next year!
