2019 Early Childhood Conference

Beyond Labels:  Envisioning the Strong, Competent Child

Más allá de las etiquetas: visualizando el niño firme y con capacidad

NMAEYC’s annual conference in Albuquerque brings together hundreds of early childhood educators and professionals from across New Mexico - teachers, home visitors, early interventionists, program administrators, students, researchers, teacher educators, families, and anyone interested in early childhood  - to explore the latest research and practice, to learn from one another and to have fun!

On Friday, March 1st, we welcome our pre-conference presenters who will facilitate 6-hour training opportunities, enabling you to delve deeply into the topic of your choice.

On Saturday, March 2nd, will offer 50+ enriching sessions and hands-on workshops as well as our keynote speaker presentation.


Why Attend the Conference

You can learn from a variety of professional presenters, including researchers, higher education faculty, family care providers, specialized professionals and community leaders, among others.
