Treat Your Brain to High Quality Sessions
The Forum is planned with you – the learner – in mind with subject matter in three tracks: Power Up Your Skills, Science Behind the Science and Technical Tool Kit.

Power Up Your Skills sessions focus on presentation elements – flexing your style as you reading your audience and what this means; verbal and physical behaviors that distract your audience; 'nice-need-must knows' in prioritizing your message, and more.

Science Behind the Science sessions are dedicated to emotional intelligence, neuroscience, engaging adult brains, positive language patterns, asking questions – how skilled are you, etc.

Technical Tool Kit sessions are a collaboration of technology and training such as effective coaching, brain-friendly presentations, reflective practice, and mapping tools.

World Café and Reception
After an intense day of brain engagement, join us at the World Café Reception – a place to mingle and meet sponsors and other event partners, to network with other attendees, to give your brain a break.

Join With Us to Support the Children of the Philippines

To help children in the Philippines cope and understand the traumatic event of Typhoon Yolanda, the CAEYC Membership Committee, spearheaded by CAEYC Vice President Dr. Shu-Chen Jenny Yen, developed a children's social story called "After Typhoon Yolanda" translated into one of the native languages, Tagalog.

CAEYC is seeking donations to help print, publish and ship the books to Early Childhood Educators in the Philippines. Your donation is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Two ways to donate: download the form or make an online contribution.

View the "After Typhoon Yolanda" English and Tagalog versions. Share this information with your friends, family and colleagues.

Thank you for your donation!

We hope you enjoyed your time at the 2014 Annual Conference & Expo as we all learned, laughed and connected with one another. We are looking forward to seeing you at the March 2015 Conference & Expo in Sacramento, CA.

Many of the conference presenters submitted their workshop handouts to be placed on the conference workshop schedule. Workshop handouts that are available are in pdf format next to each workshop description.

Relive the memories!
