This year’s Early Childhood Educators (ECE) peer networking will be structured as an “unconference,” where we will discuss the topics that you are most interested in covering.

Examples of possible topics include: 

  • creating a network of EC educators in Friends Schools who could observe and help to evaluate one another’s teaching
  • how to support students who identify as transgender and their families
  • enrollment cut-off dates...how young is too young to be enrolled in our ECE classes?
