2021 Early Learning Conference 10/30

October 30, 2021
The Florian Gardens Conference Center, 2340 Lorch Ave, Eau Claire, WI 54701

Featuring Conscious Discipline

Presented by Angela Fraley, Master Trainer

In this one-day introductory Conscious Discipline training, participants will learn and practice classroom management and social-emotional learning skills and techniques. Conscious Discipline utilizes everyday events rather than an external curriculum and addresses the adult's emotional intelligence as well as the child's. Participants will learn to respond to daily conflict in a way that transforms it into an opportunity to teach critical life skills using the components of safety, connection, and problem-solving in the classroom, as they create a "School Family".

The pandemic has continued to impact decisions on the conference and there is still uncertainty about large gatherings so we have shifted this year's conference to allow you to attend the conference in one of two ways:

 Attend LIVE the day of the conference via Zoom or join us in-person at The Florian Gardens in Eau Claire, WI. Participants who join virtually will be mailed conference materials. Attendees in-person will be provided materials the day of and lunch will be provided.

Due to this change, a flat rate of $60/person will be offered for this year's conference.  This pricing is the same for both formats of attendance.
