Snapshots from the 2013 Early Childhood Education Design Conference

Thanks to our exhibitors, sponsors, and attendees, the 2013 Early Childhood Education Design Conference was a success!  We are looking forward to the next Early Childhood Education Design Conference set for October 24, 2014, in the same location, Turnhalle, Auraria Campus, Denver, CO.  Please send your speaker and topic ideas to info@earlychildhooddesign.com

“As the director of the Colorado School Safety Resource Center and a former early childhood director, I was impressed with how brilliantly Dr. Walter Gilliam outlined for the audience why the early years are critical for the development of children emphasizing the importance of family and the positive, long-lasting effects of high quality early learning environments.”
