We invite everyone to join us in making a positive difference for children by sponsoring our Annual Conference.

The goal is to be able to continue to offer a variety of high quality speakers and to increase the number of scholarships so that more providers will have the opportunity to be renewed and inspired. They will gain knowledge and enthusiasm to continue to “nurture a love of learning” with the young children in their care. We need your support in making this high quality event a great success!
