VPK PROVIDER Conference 2019

July 20, 2019


Thank You to all of our Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) providers/teachers for attending the very first VPK Provider Conference held on Saturday, July 20, 2019!




Please find the learning materials provided to attendees and video recordings of each session (for informational purposes only).

Family Engagement: This session examines family engagement strategies from initial enrollment to the time a family prepares to leave the early learning/VPK program.  Learning will include tips and ideas for everyday engagement that can work for the classroom or front office to keep families connected and supported throughout their child’s educational journey.  Support for Kindergarten transition will also be discussed and time for shared peer to peer learning.
