Tips for a Successful Conference Experience
What sets an early childhood professional apart from someone who just cares about children? Professionals access a body of knowledge that goes beyond what the average layperson knows. Knowledge based on research, theory, reflection and experience in our field. Professionals continue to upgrade their knowledge and skills and treat learning as a lifelong process that continues throughout their careers. Research continues to discover new things and educational practices continue to evolve. This makes it imperative that we as professionals continue to refine what we know and how we apply this knowledge
