NAEYC conferences bring together early childhood educators representing many roles — teaching staff, program administrators, students, researchers and teacher educators — to discuss the latest ideas and learn from one another. The NAEYC Annual Conference & Expo is the largest early childhood education conference in the world, where tens of thousands of educators choose from hundreds of presentations and exhibits. The 2012 NAEYC Annual Conference & Expo will be in Atlanta, GA on November 7-10.
This year’s theme focuses on a critical issue: Developmentally Appropriate Practice in the 21st Century
