The 2012 Summer Sizzler was a huge success!
Nearly 450 early childhood professionals attended the 9th Annual Summer Sizzler Training Conference on Saturday, August 25, 2012.
The sellout event provided a fantastic opportunity for early childhood professionals to earn state mandated training hours.
Topics ranged from science in the classroom to recognizing signs of abuse and neglect. Four track options were available for participants to choose from: Infant/Toddler, Preschool, Administrative, and General/All Ages.
Keynote speaker, Allan Johnson, kept listeners laughing with his hilarious anecdotes and conveyed the impact teachers had on him as a young child. He offered advice for caregivers dealing with at-risk children and reminders that the smallest bit of encouragement can propel students into a successful future. During the session, listeners were out of their chairs dancing and interacting. There was never a dull moment!
We were able to offer this conference at an affordable rate to attendees thanks to the support of our sponsors. Without their continued support, many child care professionals could not afford to attend this training. In addition, we were thrilled that John Hooser, from The M.R. and Evelyn Hudson Foundation, was able to join us for the day!
