DEY 6th Annual Virtual Summer Institute: Advancing Quality in Defense of ECE

May 14, 2024    |   Upcoming Webinars

Defining, measuring, and guaranteeing high-quality care in early learning environments can be complex and difficult to make a reality. How do you demonstrate quality in your program or classroom? How can the systems used to measure quality be improved? What does high quality mean in relation to justice and equity for disadvantaged and marginalized children? 

The 2024 Sixth Annual Summer Institute from Defending the Early Years (DEY) will address these questions and many more. Join this virtual event to advance a vision and practice of high-quality early childhood education and care.
