2021 Early Years Conference has ended
The 18th Annual Early Years Conference focus is on understanding the approach to a Multi Tiered System of Support. Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) is a framework that promotes equity and access by engaging “ALL” through a tiered approach that uses differentiation of services and supports. “All means ALL”.

Throughout every educational year early care & education providers engage a variety of training opportunities showing us how to manage the educational, social, emotional and cognitive needs of children and their families. We engage daily practices, weekly, monthly, quarterly, semi-annual and annual routines with a myriad of cascading deadlines. How do high quality providers keep all of these caring routines and deadlines organized? In the age of Covid-19 there just might be a new system of supports emerging which can help every childcare provider, teacher and administrator stay up with ever increasing lists of duties necessary in the maintenance of clean and healthy learning environments. This training will introduce simple tools and practices which will help keep every area of your home-daycare or childcare center organized, safe, healthy and free from the germs which cause illnesses to spread. Every attendee will leave with swag to assist them in the implementation of new systems to support a spectacularly clean and operationally organized early care and education center. It is impossible to set up a classroom to achieve MTSS framework and individualize learning to meet the needs of every child without an organized classroom routine. Engaging all staff members in the support of these classroom, center and outdoor routines can be a fun-filled teamwork enhancer which engages the children in the care for their own environments too! We would love the opportunity to share how these tools lead to Sweet Teams!
