What is the Professional Learning Institute?

NAEYC’s Professional Learning Institute brings together seasoned and emerging early childhood leaders in a community of learners focused on deepening the early childhood knowledge base, addressing challenging and controversial issues facing the field, and developing skills to improve professional development and practice.

The Institute features hundreds of informative sessions and research posters, unique networking opportunities, and a vibrant exhibit hall marketplace including the NAEYC Shop. NAEYC seeks proposals that reflect innovative thinking in early childhood education, informed by research, policy, and practice.

The theme for this year’s Professional Learning Institute is Creating a Caring, Equitable Community of Learners.
