Impact Early Education Summit

June 18, 2022 @ 8:00 am 4:30 pm

Join PBS North Carolina at our Impact Early Childhood Education Summit
The Impact Early Childhood Education Summit is a gathering of Early Childhood Education Professionals, parents, and caregivers aimed at celebrating and supporting those who are helping children, birth through third grade, to grow strong roots for a healthy foundation. What happens in the early years of a child’s life shapes the rest of their lives in important ways, but too often, those who are doing the work in those early years are overlooked in professional development and parenting support events.

There is no cost to attend! Teachers may use this Impact Summit for Continuing Education Units.
