2018 Program Preview

Whether you are frustrated by children’s behavior, looking for proven strategies and research based information on how to care or educate young children from birth to eight years old, or seeking out the cutting edge trends and shifts in teaching and learning for 2018, be sure to join us.

We make learning easy for new parents, novices and seasoned professionals, alike, to feed an interest and achieve professional development goals. You can come for one day, two days or all four. Attendees can build their schedule to satisfy curiosities on a variety of subject matters, or choose to hone in on a subject, instructional strategy or piece of research for all four days- each session and day building on the next.

“Adopt and adapt what works, whether it is an instructional strategy common in early childhood or in a related field.” Gail Conway, Opening Minds CEO.

The Opening Minds Early Education Conference is a unique opportunity to build your personal professional support network of teachers, professors, principals, librarians, occupational and physical therapists, curriculum directors, doctors, nurses, social workers and psychologists, architects, entrepreneurs, artists, musicians, and many more who you can count on once the conference ends. One of the best ways to engage (and learn from) all the people in young children’s lives at home, in school and in the community is person-to- person. The Opening Minds Early Education Conference is the only event in the nation where people of all professions educating or caring for young children gather to learn, side-by- side, together.

This is just a preview of what’s planned. More sessions, descriptions, and presenters will be added, regularly. Follow us on Facebook, to get updates in real time. The full schedule of listings will be available in January.
