ParentChild+ National Conference

The ParentChild+ National Center sponsors an Annual Conference which takes place in the spring. The two-day conference features workshops for both site coordinators and early learning specialists, and is designed to provide professional development for ParentChild+ staff. Site coordinators (and, if possible, early learning specialists) are strongly encouraged to attend. Many of the workshops cover topics of interest to anyone working in the early childhood or home visiting field, and is open to all of those who are interested.
