Celebrating ECSTEM 2018!

ECSTEM 2018 was a huge success! With your support we welcomed over 600 attendees from multiple states and several countries, and held over 40 workshops!

We are lucky every year to collaborate with multiple vendors in the early childhood field that bring their products to the conference to showcase. Several of these vendors donate (or offer at an extremely reduced rate) their floor models for the CCC to bring back directly to our classrooms. Below are a few of our new pieces received this year!

We were proud to have our one and only Julia Greer, aka “roller blade mom”  join us this year for a fabulous discussion that left the audience energized and inspired. Thank you Julia!

We also wanted to reach out and say thank you to our parent community for your continuing support of our work in introducing STEM concepts to the world of early childhood education! We know that school closure days can be inconvenient so we are so grateful to offer this day to our teachers to attend the conference and grow as professionals. We hope you will see the influence of their experience in the classroom and the benefit that professional development has on our community.

Thanks again,

Susan and the CCC Staff
