Save the date: Early Care and Education fall institute
The Early Care and Education fall institute is scheduled for Oct. 5-6 at the Prairie Meadows Conference Center in Altoona. Co-sponsored by the Iowa Department of Education and the Iowa Association for the Education of Young Children, the fall Institute, titled It Begins with Me, provides opportunities to learn about early childhood research and initiatives, take advantage of the resources of supporting agencies, and learn from national experts and each other.
The institute is open to all professionals who work with infants and children, from birth to 8 years old, including staff and consultants from Early ACCESS, area education agencies, Statewide Voluntary Preschool Programs, Early Childhood Special Education programs, and Shared Visions programs. School administrators, elementary teachers, and other early care educators and providers should also consider attending.
