Attend the NC Child Care Coalition’s 2016 Early Education Forum
Posted on 03.01.2016, Tuesday

The NC Child Care Coalition’s 2016 Early Education Forum – “Advancing the Early Childhood Workforce through Research, Policy and Advocacy” – is being held on Tuesday, April 5th from 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM at the McKimmon Center at NC State University (1101 Gorman Street, Raleigh 27606).

This year, the Coalition’s annual Early Education Forum will focus on the educators who work with our state’s youngest learners. Early childhood teachers are the key component to quality programs that build the foundation for young children’s development, health, early learning, and future success. Yet too often, early educators themselves may not have all the necessary education, preparation, support and compensation they need to be effective teachers and deliver the full promise of quality early education.

The 2016 Early Education Forum offers:

  • Research: Get the latest national and state research and information about the early education workforce.
  • Policy: Hear from state leaders and policymakers about what can be done to advance early childhood teacher education, professional development, and compensation.
  • Advocacy: Support early educators, directors, and parents as they share their perspectives on the value of early education, and get the latest advocacy tools to make advances in quality early education.

The Forum also features a keynote presentation on “Transforming the Early Care and Education Workforce” by Albert Wat, Senior Policy Director at theAlliance for Early Success, as well as the Legislator of the Year Awards Ceremony.

Registration is open until March 30th, and tickets are $50 for Coalition members, $65 for nonmembers, and $25 for early education classroom teachers and students. Please click here to learn more about the event and buy your ticket today!
