Social Emotional Summit

Social Emotional Learning: The Heart of Academic Achievement

The theme for this inaugural summit is Social-Emotional Learning: The Heart of Academic Achievement. Research tells us it is critical to pay as much attention to young children’s feelings as we do to their thinking. This summit will focus on providing information, strategies, and techniques for supporting academic achievement through high-quality early learning experiences that also support children’s social-emotional development. It will be appropriate for practitioners who work with young children in various sectors—education, health, intervention, etc. The summit will be held on September 19 – 20, 2018 at the Glendale Civic Center. The two-day summit will be open to all early childhood education practitioners, administrators, and community partners.
