Next week, Way to Grow’s Executive Director, Carolyn Smallwood, and Director of Early Education, Carrie Zelin Johnson, will travel to Atlanta to give a presentation on our home visiting model to attendees of the Beyond School Hours conference. Now in its 17th year, the Beyond School Hours conference is one of the nation’s largest and most inspiring education conferences. We’re excited to be returning for the second year in a row to present two breakout sessions.
Last year, we focused on our home visiting strategies. This year’s workshop will share strategies that create a culture of learning at home by supporting parent engagement across diverse populations. Attendees will learn home visiting strategies to equip parents to take action while at the same time challenging programs and schools to have the confidence in their parents to make a difference. We believe it’s possible to develop a partnership that is active and produces results. This session is for programs serving children ages 3-8.
Are you attending the conference? You can find our workshops in the “Setting the Stage in the Early Years” conference strand. Our workshops are numbers 2 and 5.
