Early Learning Conference Presenters
April 26th & 27th, 2024
In the vibrant tapestry of our Early Learning Conference Experiences, the luminosity of knowledge and wisdom is embodied in our esteemed presenters. Welcome, dear presenters, to the symposium of ideas, where your insights will undoubtedly shape the future of learning for generations to come.
We extend a heartfelt invitation to partake in a journey of unparalleled professional learning, transformative workshops, meaningful connections, and unparalleled access to resources crafted to fortify the endeavors of Early Learning Professionals in our region.
At the heart of this transformative gathering stands a cohort of presenters, individuals of extraordinary generosity who willingly volunteer their time, expertise, and wealth of knowledge. Their invaluable contributions are the bedrock upon which this event is constructed. Without their selfless dedication to sharing developmentally appropriate and culturally responsive insights, the vital needs of professional development and training for Early Learning practitioners in the Central Oregon Region would remain unmet. To these dedicated presenters, we express our profound gratitude, deeply honored that you would consider joining us in the ongoing journey to elevate the Early Learning Conference of Central Oregon to unparalleled heights, solidifying its status as one of the foremost events in the State.

“Attending the conference enchanted me, fostering connections with fellow educators. Sharing my rich professional and personal experiences as a presenter unveiled a new realm of connections. The event created a magical space, welcoming collaboration and camaraderie. Highly recommended for those passionate about the field.”
“I presented last year and had so much fun. The process of presenting went really smoothly from the time we submitted our application to the time we were actually in the classroom speaking to our wonderful participants.
My advice would be to remember that the presentation should have information for anyone in our field to walk away with. Your group of participants may include system staff, program management staff, or program/classroom staff. Think of how folks can make an impact through the topic you’re presenting in the different areas of our field. Also know that you got this and you are doing a valuable thing for early childhood!”
“I’m thrilled to share my positive experience at the 2023 Central Oregon Community College Early Education Conference. It’s not just a training conference; it’s a catalyst for personal and professional growth. So much diverse knowledge of vast child care content was offered. The only negative was not being able to be in two places at one time to capture it all. The trainings were a treasure trove, diving deep into early ed core knowledge categories like child development, special needs, health and safety, learning environments, family and community systems, and more. Whatever support you seek, you’ll find offered there over the two day professional conference.
Beyond the classroom, the conference was a hub for personal and professional connections and wisdom. Networking with fellow early educators was incredibly rewarding to feel a part of our inherent caregiving and supportive community. It’s like finding your daycare soulmates at a professional playdate! The insightful program practices gained can transform the way you approach early education and care, and inspires providers to tackle the dynamic world of child care with purpose and fulfillment. In a world where you are the caregiver providing all the supports, this conference cares and supports YOU. And it’s offered every year, so the relationships formed and knowledge learned is built upon to keep you thriving. Mark your calendars for 2024 Early Learning Conference so you don’t miss this opportunity to invest in yourself!
