ECEBC is pleased to present its 41st annual conference, "Playing It Forward:
Discovering the Wonder and Value of Authentic Play." As early childhood educators we know the importance of play in children's overall development, and this conference will be full of opportunities to explore the many dimensions of play. The conference will also bring opportunities to examine theories and trends in our professional early childhood practices, approaches to leadership, advocacy, and other signifi cant issues that affect our field.

We are excited to offer innovative workshops, inspiring presenters, a fantastic Trade Show and Resource Fair, sit-down lunch buffets, and a Friday night Gala that promises to be an evening of celebration and fun. This year, to celebrate Westcoast Child Care Resource Centre's 25th anniversary, ECEBC and Westcoast have planned a wonderful evening at Science World on Thursday evening. It's another conference event to not miss!
