Past Highlights

Every year we offer workshops that encourage early childhood educators and support staff to share knowledge, skills, and stories that will help them design and deliver programs and services immersed in our cultures. Our conference is focused on Indigenous ways of knowing and being, but registration is open to all people working in the field of Early Learning and Child Care.
