Connections Corner

Exclusive | First3Years Members Only

Connections Corner is a digital and interactive series with First3Years! These members only events will allow for open discussion and deep engagement on special early childhood topics. Events will be hosted via Zoom and will be limited to 30 participants to allow for effective communication and interaction. We are encouraged that these sessions will create communities of learning with candid questions and sharing of real-life experiences.

Connections Corner is meant to provide a safe space for professionals who impact the lives of young children to come together to expand their wealth of knowledge through the benefits of vicarious learning, a robust discussion, and the exploration of effective tools and strategies that can be integrated into diverse environments.
