Networking and shared professional development opportunities make a significant contribution to quality of work life for professionals working with young children and their families. Early Childhood Networking meetings are offered to all persons in the CESA 2 region that are interested in:

  • Early care and education topics for children birth to eight years old
  • Networking with other districts and agencies
  • Regular updates on state initiatives, research, and best practice

The goal of the Early Childhood Networking event is to create a community in which learning occurs through collaboration, information sharing, and exploration of best practice with the focus on current topics in EC.

This year we are piloting joint EC Networking with CESAs 1, 2, 6, & 11 working together. Come and learn from colleagues in other areas of the state. For this special session, Julie Betchal will be the guest speaker & will discuss Pyramid Model work.
