NAEYC Conferences and Workshop
November 4, 2014 Full Day Workshop
This year at the 2014 NAEYC Annual Conference and Expo we will be holding two full-day pre-conference workshops. Both workshops will serve as the kickoff what is slated to be an amazing conference in Dallas, Texas. Each session will provide valuable information that will help you innovate and apply new skills and knowledge within the childcare field.
“Continuous Program Quality Improvement through Program Creation and Revision” is a new workshop that we are unveiling this year; and is for all programs who wish to strengthen their Program Portfolio. We will be providing tips to ensure that the Portfolio is exemplifying the quality of evidence that should be displayed, in the evidence as opposed to the quantity of evidence that would lead to bulky portfolios. Along with numerous innovative ways to continuously improve the quality in your program.
“Preparing Classrooms and Teach Staff to Demonstrate Quality during the NAEYC Site Visit” is a workshop geared towards informing childhood professionals who would like to receive information regarding what NAEYC Assessors are observing when on a site visit.
For all programs seeking to acquire more knowledge on some of the best practices that NAEYC has to offer please register for either one of these workshops. Both workshops will be held on November 4, 2014 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center from 8:30 am- 4:00 p.m. You can register for these workshops by clicking here.

Affiliate AEYC Affiliate Conferences
The Accreditation Training Center partners with NAEYC Affiliates to offer detailed NAEYC Accreditation seminars in a selection of states each year. These local offerings typically provide smaller group training than NAEYC's Annual Conference and the opportunity to have your questions answered first-hand.
The Accreditation Training Center also provides training at a limited number of conferences offered by other stakeholder groups. Some of these events may not be open to the general public. Contact the host organization for more details.
