Nurturing Relationships Marked by Love and Boundaries

Are you looking for an opportunity to renew your professional and spiritual growth? As Christian early educators, we understand the importance of nurturing all children and loving them right where they are so that trust is built between the child and teacher allowing for dynamic growth and development in each student.  Our conference theme, Nurturing Relationships Marked by Love and Boundaries, will direct the conference sessions to focus on modeling Jesus' love to our students while creating healthy boundaries in the classroom. Join early educators and develop a deeper understanding of ways to provide an engaging early education classroom environment that will allow children to feel safe, loved, and accepted.
