Columbus Day Conference

Cultivating Creativity in Early Childhood Education

Each fall Child Care Solutions offers a full-day professional development conference for child care providers in the Central New York region. The conference focuses on current issues in the early childhood education field and gives providers the essential training they need to build high-quality programs for the children of CNY. This year our conference took place on October 9th, and explored Cultivating Creativity in Early Childhood Education. When children think creatively, they practice & strengthen critical life skills like self-expression, autonomy, innovation, inventiveness, individuality, collaboration, imagination, originality, and more. Conference attendees were treated to an engaging keynote address and book signing from local children’s book author Mark Eischen, had the chance to visit a number of wonderful vendor tables, and of course, participate in training workshops taught in both English and Spanish. We sincerely thank everyone who took the time to attend!
