The ninth annual Foothills Regional Conference for Early Childhood Educators will be held Saturday, Nov. 2, from 8:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. at the Rowan County Agricultural Resources Center, 2727 Old Concord Road.

This year’s conference theme is “Reflect, Refresh, Renew.” The conference is an educational opportunity for early childhood educators including childcare professionals, teachers, and others interested in helping every young child succeed. Educational sessions will focus on the importance of providing early literacy opportunities for each child, managing risks related to child safety, and strategies that encourage teacher/child interactions, family engagement and cultural competence.
The registration fee is $12, which covers materials, morning refreshments and lunch. The conference is approved for 3.5 contact credit hours through the N.C. Division of Child Development. Brochures with registration forms are available at rowan.ces.ncsu.edu .
