Early Childhood Education Symposium

Early Childhood Education Symposium

Thursday, June 6 – Friday, June 7, 2019

LPA Irvine, California

Building for Better Minds

An interactive event focused on new ideas to engage and stimulate young learners.

The developmental experience of early childhood is one of active engagement and assertiveness as children explore their world and their ability to impact it. Join us as leading industry experts gather to discuss the unique challenges of developing young learners. This symposium will examine early childhood learning through the lens of the built environment, as participants consider the ways in which school design can support both developmental and academic goals.

Speakers will offer insights from the fields of youth development, mind brain education and play-based learning. Practitioner and industry leaders will connect theory to on-the-ground practice, with activities designed to leverage the collective knowledge of participants to consider design solutions. The event will include a tour of a groundbreaking pK-12 campus with innovative early childhood learning environments to offer inspiration for design and ideas for future schools.

Member Public $50.00 | Member Private $75.00
