Announcing the 2014 Early Childhood Education Design Conference!

After two highly successful ECE Design Conferences in 2012 and 2013, we are pleased to announce the 2014 ECE Design Conference.  Save the date Friday, October 24, 2014, Auraria Campus, Denver, Colorado.  Additional speakers and planned events will be announced shortly.

The annual ECE Design Conference has engaged hundreds of researchers, planners, designers, developers, facility operators and thought leaders from around the globe in advancing early childhood design practices.  Currently the only major conference focused on ECE design research and best practices, this event hosts a one of a kind forum for the leaders that help shape ECE environments.  In past conferences, expert speakers have addressed ECE topics ranging from neuroscience and the early learner, nature based learning, sustainability, special needs, cognition and movement and safety and security.

“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.”
