Five Years of Grandes Comienzos!
Note: NAEYC's 2019 Grandes Comienzos call for proposals is now closed. Registration will open this summer.
Grandes Comienzos means "Great Beginnings" and reflects NAEYC’s wish for all young children, in the United States and around the world. Grandes Comienzos focuses on ensuring that children and families whose home language is Spanish have access to high-quality programs. This Annual Conference language track provides the early childhood community with access to sessions in Spanish and English on topics concerning young children, their families, and early childhood education throughout the Americas and around the world.
Grandes Comienzos offers three components:
- Sessions conducted in Spanish on topics of interest across the field
- Sessions on dual-language learning and other relevant topics including advocacy, family engagement, language literacy, and professional development
- Sessions that focus on best practices in early childhood education in Latin America (conducted in Spanish)
