Anchored Professional Development for Early Educators


Early educators and anyone who influences young children are called to let the gospel light shine in our lives to serve as a beacon of hope for those we teach, lead and impact. Whether you are an administrator, early educator, early elementary educator, involved with your children’s church ministry, or parent, we invite you to join us for this exciting opportunity to be ANCHORED to your passion for teaching and leading young learners.




Workshops and Conferences provide up to 6 clock hours of training. A workshop offers a deep dive into a specific topic with one main presenter. A conference offers a variety of topics taught by a variety of presenters. Leader Summits also provide up to 6 clock hours of training with sessions for leaders. 


What have early educators said about ACSI Professional Development events?

"I have been reminded that I must take care of myself before I can minister to and teach the children in my class. I must be a healthy shepherd for my flock. I want to help my children grow, learn, and flourish!"

"All the speakers we heard from were great! Thank you for creating conferences such as these to help us as educators grow and learn!” 

"I thoroughly ENJOYED the speakers today and I cannot wait to take back the things I learned today to my classroom on Monday!!  Thank you so very much!  This is not my first year teaching, but my first year of our school starting a 3 year old preschool and what an exciting conference to help me see and implement learning with the Biblical views!"
