  • Environment/Curriculum
  • Inclusion

Our goal is to have a broad range of seminar topics that evenly address the different branches of the early childhood field. Please consider these topics and age groups when submitting your proposal. If you or someone you know has a presentation to share in one of these topic area or others, please submit a proposal! If you are just starting out and not interested in presenting a full workshop yet, consider doing a poster presentation to highlight your creative ideas and techniques for the field.

Audiovisual Equipment. NMAEYC provides a screen in every conference room. Rooms accommodating more than 50 people will also have a microphone.

Exhibits and Networking Opportunities

We also offer both commercial and not-for-profit exhibits of products and services designed to assist and educate those who live with and/or work with young children.
