Early Childhood Conference

Early Childhood Conference

“Everyday Superheroes”

The EFS Annual Early Childhood Conference is just a month away!

The theme perfectly embodies early educators and all they do every day to pave the way for future generations.

The annual conference takes place each year and offers a full day of professional development and training courses that educate, equip, and empower educators with tools and resources for success in their school and classrooms.

The conference is offered at NO COST to the teachers and directors in EFS’ 100+ network of childcare centers throughout North Texas.

The event is traditionally held in person, but will take place virtually this year and will allow even more educators to attend the focused training tracks.
