Early Childhood Conference

Love, Care and Kindness in Early Childhood

March 9, 2019

Ullsvik Hall, University of Wisconsin-Platteville Campus


Join us for the annual Early Chilhood Conference - Saturday, March 9th, 2019.

Spend the day with friends and area early childhood professionals to learn, collaborate, and be inspired with new ideas for your work with children and their families.

“Every child needs at least one adult who is irrationally crazy about him or her.”
Urie Bronfenbrenner

This year's first keynote speaker, Dr. Michele Turner shares her family’s inspirational story of three generations in the Early Childhood Care and Education field. She will share real stories of how one childcare provider can transform many lives by being “irrationally crazy” for kids.  Dr. Turner will share why love, care and kindness is more important than any other aspect of early childhood education. 

Linda DeMoe is this year’s afternoon keynote speaker. Linda will give us the opportunity to laugh, to cry and to find some peace within our daily lives.  Listen to the many ways to build self-esteem in yourself as well as those around you.  Bring an open mind and an open heart and prepare to be transformed!
