Recognizing the need for high quality professional development in all scenarios throughout Connecticut, CTAEYC presents the Saturday Academy every month from January to May. Each session offers participants an opportunity for in-depth exploration of a subject and for learning through practical opportunities, with a clear link to the Connecticut Early Learning and Development Standards, NAEYC standards, and early childhood theories.

We are excited to announce our 2020 Saturday Academy Schedule!

We will be offering our Saturday Academies on the following dates next year:  February 1, February 22, March 21, April 25, & May 30.
