We are thrilled to announce that Denita Dinger (Listen to the Children)

will provide our conference keynote.

"Since 2009, Denita's message has traveled the globe through presentations based on what children have taught her throughout her 24 years of working with children. (Sixteen of those years as a family child-care provider with an emphasis on preschool, and 8 years operating a child-led school for children ages 3-10 and a summer camp for children ages 7-15!) Through all of her work with children, Denita believes in providing a truly open-ended, emotionally healthy environment that is ready to embrace THEIR ideas. She believes in fostering relationships, meeting needs, empowering autonomy, and giving ownership to the children." - Denita Dinger

We truly can't wait to be inspired and empowered by Denita's message,

and are so pleased to share that she will also present workshops on both

Friday and Saturday afternoons during Leadership Day and the Conference.

Thank you to our amazing Sponsors
