Conference Information

We would like to welcome you to the Childhood Conversations  and Together We Will joint conference page.  Our 2020 Conference was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and will now take place on Friday, April 2, 2021 at the Hartford-Windsor Marriott in Windsor, CT.

It is our hope that our conference will allow you to explore deeper content, make cross-sector connections, and gain perspectives on how to maximize connections within your community.  Our theme will continue to be “Together We Will…Explore the Landscape of Equity and Bias through the Lens of Social-Emotional Learning.

Workshop sessions address the following specific groups: Parents, Parenting Educators, Early Childhood Teachers/Caregivers, Elementary Teachers, Mental Health Providers, After School Professionals, and Early Intervention Providers. The conference is open to anyone that shares an interest in the betterment of communities, children, and families.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2021 conference.  If you paid for the 2020 conference, your registration will transfer if otherwise stated.
