Childcare Resources’ Hosts Virtual Education Conference for Early Care Professionals
"Our goal remains the same—to provide useful information for early childhood professionals as they navigate the new normal in early care, helping young children learn, grow, and reach their full potential.”
That’s what Amy Bradley, Provider Education and Support Manager at Childcare Resources, says this year’s virtual Sky’s the Limit Training Conference will provide early childhood educators in our community.
On June 12, 2021, Childcare Resources will launch its second virtual Sky’s the Limit Training Conference, designed to deliver expert insights, resources, and trainings for early childhood educators from the comfort of their own homes. Those interested in helping young children learn, develop, and discover the world around them will find this virtual conference motivating, stimulating, and inspiring.
The conference will provide valuable information from early education experts on various topics ranging from infant and early childhood mental health to practical, inexpensive STEAM activities. Childcare Resources’ Executive Director, Joan Wright, will also host a panel of early care professionals to discuss emergency preparedness related to pandemic responses.
“We’re pleased to welcome all of our wonderful presenters who have chosen to move forward with this online opportunity,” says Bradley. “We are especially excited to welcome our keynote speaker, Holly Elissa Bruno, a leader in the field of early childhood education.”
Holly Elissa Bruno, MA, JD, is an award-winning, best-selling author on emotional intelligence and managing legal risks in early childhood education. Before joining the early childhood field, she served as Assistant Attorney General in Maine; and as Dean of Faculty and Associate Professor at the University of Maine-Augusta, where she was also selected as an Outstanding Professor. Holly will share encouraging words and leadership practices for navigating the post-pandemic world of early care for child care centers, family child care homes, schools, and the community.
Childcare Resources will also offer a virtual vendor opportunity for local businesses and organizations looking to get involved in this year’s conference. Vendor product information and promotion will be available on the event app and Childcare Resources’ unique, innovative virtual platform. They will also receive the opportunity to build relationships with over 100 conference attendees.
“Registered attendees can view the keynote, watch recorded sessions, and access the Virtual Vendor Area online at any time from June 12 until June 26," says Bradley. "The conference will offer five and a half professional development training hours, and of course, an assortment of wonderful door prizes!"
