The First Annual Caregivers Conference
Supporting Early and Emergent Literacy in our Community

Do you work with young children ages 0 – 5?
Come to our Caregivers Conference to explore literacy-based play and brush up on best-practices for selecting books for young children and sharing them. Whether you’re a seasoned professional or a grandparent watching grandchildren, this afternoon will have something for everyone.

For professional childcare providers, this conference will provide
3 hours towards your annual training hours required by the VT Child Development Division.

In addition to some great information, a make-and-take craft, group explorations of resources and learning, we’ll also have some giveaways for your kids AND door prize raffle for adults.
