2015 Early Childhood Education Conference Information


After careful consideration, and following discussions with many key partners and stakeholders, we have decided to postpone the Expanding Early Childhood Education in Montana conference until mid-Fall of 2015. We believe that the later timing of the event will allow us to bring together the best possible combination of panelists, speakers and audience, in order to most effectively advance the discussion of early childhood education for the citizens of Montana as we move into the future.

While we are sorry that we will not be hosting the event as soon as we had hoped, and apologize for any confusion that this change creates, we are convinced that the delay will result and a stronger event and will better support efforts to craft policy that will best support efforts to expand early childhood education in the state.

We will be holding this conference on November 6th, 2015 in Billings, MT. We will keep you posted with details.

Thank you for supporting this event.
