Fall 2017 Water Cooler Conference

Building on progress in early care and education (ECE) in California


We will announce featured speakers and panelists soon! The conference will feature top researchers, advocates and practitioners championing early care and education. A few highlights include:

  • Exploring the ECE policy landscape.
  • Supporting the whole child from the start: elevating the developmental, health and learning needs of California’s infants and toddlers and their families.
  • Expanding the discussion of quality to reflect the diverse needs of our youngest learners, including dual language learners.
  • Fortifying ECE policy and advocacy with the voice of community and the lens of racial equity.
  • Building on ECE principles and pedagogy for greater birth -12 alignment that strengthens instructional practices for students beyond preschool.
