2018 Child Care Teachers Symposium

August 25, 2018
8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Hyatt Regency
208 Barton Springs Rd
Austin, TX 78704

To celebrate and honor all of our child care educators, our theme for this year’s event is Be the Vision. Our goal is that, after attending the Child Care Teachers Symposium, you will leave feeling inspired and empowered, especially in the areas of social-emotional development, curriculum enhancement, as well as positive interactions and guidance in early childhood.

This year, we have an incredible lineup of speakers who will present on various topics, such as parent relationships, math and science, working with children with special needs, infant/toddler care, and much more! Our opening keynote with Albert Wright will motivate and rejuvenate your teaching spirit as you remember why you entered this field and what your purpose is. During lunch, we will have a keynote by Leah Osborne that we hope will remind you of the impact you have on the children you work with every day.

We hope that you will join us at this year’s Child Care Teachers Symposium for a wonderful day of professional growth, reflection, and networking!
