Join us for the 2014 Early Childhood conference

SATURDAY, MARCH 8, 2014 – 7:30AM TO 4:00PM

We are excited to announce the 27th Annual University of Wisconsin-Platteville Early Childhood Conference,

“Peaceful Child, Peaceful Adult, Peaceful World” 
Educating For a More Peaceful World.

“If we are to achieve real peace in the world, we must first start with the children” -Ghandi

“My hope and wish is that one day, formal education will pay attention to what I call education of the heart. Just as we take for granted the need to acquire proficiency in the basic academic subjects, I am hopeful that a time will come when we can take it for granted that children will learn, as part of the curriculum, the indispensability of inner values: love, compassion, justice, and forgiveness.” -The Dalai Lama

“Peace begins with a smile."- Mother Theresa

"I believe every human mind feels pleasure in doing good to another."- Thomas Jefferson

Your work with children is so important not only for the future of our children, but for the future of our world.  The children that we care for and educate today, will be the leaders of tomorrow.  How can we educate children with the values of love, compassion, justice, and forgiveness?  We will spend the day connecting with experts in the field and we will learn new ways to help children to be more peaceful.  
Chan Chau Nghiem, editor of the new book, Mindfulness with Children, by Thich Nhat Hahn, will join us live, via the Internet from the Plum Village Monastery in France. She will share with us the ideas from this wonderful book by Thich Nhat Hahn, the famous peace and human rights activist. We will learn how practicing mindfulness and cooperative games with children can teach empathy.

Kim Ratz will start our day with an inspirational keynote address about how to deal with challenge and change with positivity and how to take time to celebrate the positive difference that you make in the lives of children and families.

This will be a day to relax, rejuvenate, and be inspired with new ideas for your work with children.
