Child Care Conference 2020 – CANCELLED

May 2, 2020

COVID-19 update

Due to concerns over public gatherings during COVID-19, the MacEwan Child Care Conference 2020 has been cancelled.



Welcome to the MacEwan Child Care Conference 2020. The planning committee is inspired by the great numbers of participants who continue to join us each year to participate and embrace opportunity for growth and learning in the field of early childhood.

This year will offer a collection of relevant and engaging sessions to regenerate, motivate and inspire you in your practice and relationships with children, families and co-educators. We hope your time with us will offer space for networking, considering new ideas, conversations and reflection. Continuing last year’s format, we are excited to share topics and information significant to the current Alberta early childhood context beginning with three featured speakers.

Dianne Kashin will remind us to believe in children’s ‘mighty’-ness in her presentation, The Image of the Child as a Mighty Learner: What that Means to Teaching and Learning. Tibetha Kemble, author of a report created for EndPovertyEdmonton, will bring us her findings in a session titled Indigenous Early Learning and Care – Voices and Perspectives of Indigenous Parents and Caregivers. Line Perron will share her expertise in relation to the topic of trauma in her session Implementing Trauma Informed Practices with Young Children.
