Greater Tacoma Convention and Trade Center
At Child Care Aware of Washington we are supporting the development of an outstanding child care and early learning system available to all of Washington’s children. As part of this important work we are thrilled to present our fourth Elevate Early Learning Conference Oct. 1 – 2, 2019 at the Tacoma Convention Center.
The Elevate Early Learning Conference is Washington’s premiere event for child care and early learning leaders. It brings together relationship-based practitioners, trainers and policymakers to attend skill-building sessions and engage in cross-systems conversations to help them become stronger and more successful leaders.
Our theme this year is Sustain and Grow. More than half of licensed child care providers in Washington have earned an Early Achievers rating at least once. More than 85% of rated programs have achieved Level 3 or higher. All children on Working Connections are now in programs receiving coaching, training, scholarships and financial rewards for improving quality. Now that most licensed programs in Washington are participating in and have been rated for Early Achievers, it is time to celebrate the incredible efforts that improved child care quality across the state, and embrace new opportunities to support early learning professionals.
