Florida sets first global early learning summit for October

The Early Learning Coalition of Pasco and Hernando Counties Inc. is seeking sponsors and exhibitors for Florida’s first global early learning conference slated for Oct. 15 at Bishop McLaughlin Catholic High School in Spring Hill.

One of 30 similar statewide groups, the Coalition is collaborating with two sister organizations in the United Kingdom for the 2016 event, rendering it Florida’s first official international early learning gathering. With its “Celebrate Diversity: Together We Make Our World Complete” theme, the group invites area businesses and agencies to become event sponsors and/or exhibitors.

Open to the public, the all-day event at the high school located at 13651 Hays Rd. will begin with breakfast, and include breakout sessions and lunch. Seminar topics already scheduled include diversity and social justice in early childhood settings, equality as a key to ending violence, dietary guidelines, brain building activities for active families and more.

Exhibitors can network with over 900 attendees in the field — caregivers, instructors and directors of preschools, parents, counselors, advocates and more. The conference highlights developments in infant mental health, social work, family involvement and business management as well as early education.

For exhibitor and sponsor prices, please contact Dina Crespo-Brambilla at d.crespo-brambilla@phelc.org, or call 352-754-5068.  

Florida’s Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) initiative accommodates all children aged four and up as of Sept. 1, while the school readiness program subsidizes childcare for low-to-moderate income working families, serving more than 13,000 children through 400-plus providers.
