When spring is in the air, my early childhood colleagues know that the excitement of the national conference season is upon us! Early childhood national conferences provide state policy makers and advocates with rich learning and networking opportunities that advance our capacity to better serve families and children.
TCC is pleased to announce our Gold Sponsorship of the 2017 National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) Professional Learning Institute being held in San Francisco from June 11-14. Over 2,000 participants are expected. This conference is aimed at empowering the early learning workforce to be active participants in their own learning experience.
We are also a proud 5-Star Sponsor of the BUILD 2017 QRIS National Meeting taking place in Dallas from June 27-29. Attendance is expected to be over 1,000 this year. Participants will learn about the latest research, effective practices and innovations in early childhood quality rating and improvement systems (QRIS).
TCC staff will be available at both conferences to give hands on demonstrations of our newly enhanced early childhood integrated data system, Ascend. States who choose Ascend are empowered by robust tools and rich data needed to make smart management, policy and investment decisions.
You can find us at our exhibit booth or attend one of our sessions. To contact us prior to these conferences and set up a private appointment, please email one of our friendly staff.
