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”.

Access and view your schedule by clicking the "Schedule" pull down menu located to the right of your profile picture (or head icon) and clicking "Simple".

On Friday and/or Saturday you will need to log in to your Sched profile and pull up your schedule to see your workshop titles. Click on the workshop to view description, presenter information, view documents and access the Zoom link. Zoom links for each workshop will appear below each workshop title 10 minutes before that workshop is scheduled to begin on each day of the conference. Simply click on the link below the title to enter the virtual workshop. (No links will be emailed to you, you must log into your Sched account to access all Zoom links.)

Some workshops will have documents affiliated with the training you are attending. These documents are available immediately for you if they are on your schedule. It is suggested that prior to the conference, you download to your computer and/or print any documents you are interested in so that you can easily access them during the conference.

Participants will receive 6 PD hours per day. Their hours will be added into the Workforce Registry between 1 to 4 weeks after the conference. Participants will also receive a certificate of completion – but will not be asked to upload this certificate to the Workforce Registry.
