Wisconsin Early Childhood Collaborating Partners Event

The Wisconsin Early Childhood Collaborating Partners is sponsoring a free training about supporting language and early literacy in the home and community on August 14 from 10-3 at Hotel Mead in Wisconsin Rapids.  Early childhood professionals from all over the state will be there to learn about a series of language and early literacy professional development materials, designed for professionals in all early learning and care settings
serving children, birth to 5. The training and lunch are free because of funding from a Wisconsin Race to The Top grant.

The organizers are encouraging community teams to attend together.  The target audience includes persons who are responsible for professional development for 4K, ECSE, reading/literacy, curriculum & assessment, etc.; early childhood partners in 2 & 4-year IHEs, and other community partners like library directors and youth services librarians.  Questions?
