The inaugural Child Engagement Conference was held March 5-6, 2010 in downtown Chattanooga. The event attracted participants from around the country and served as a ground-breaking event for the field of early child development. Early childhood professionals expanded their child development knowledge, learned new home and classroom strategies, and connected with peers who support child engagement as a critical component of child development. This community of practitioners will continue to exchange knowledge and ideas through the Child Engagement Listserv and Message Board. The speakers presenting at the Child Engagement Conference will impart tools for promoting child engagement in the home, in early childhood settings, and in the community. The all-inclusive conference fees will provide participants with a jump drive of all presentation materials, breakfasts, lunch, an evening reception, break food, and free conference venue parking.
