Building Relationships and Lasting Connections is the 17th Annual Child Care Professional Institute

The 17th annual Child Care Professional Institute is sponsored by Professional Learning Alternatives, Inc. The Institute is designed for all early childhood and school-age professionals as well as others interested in the education and support of our children including foster and respite care providers, parents, grandparents, high school and college students, school personnel, youth leaders, etc.

As we begin our seventeenth year as a regional leader in providing excellent educational opportunities for child care professionals and youth educators of all kinds, we are planning for our annual recognition of the awesome efforts expended daily by those who are caring for our children and youth.  To that end, we would like to welcome both exhibitors new to our event as well as returning exhibitors.

In addition, returning again this year is the option to specifically direct your support toward one or more Institute instructors; or you may choose to sponsor the breakfast and/or lunch service and/or the afternoon break.

There are several other ways you can support the important work of child care professionals as well.  All contributor and exhibitor names and contact information are printed in the Institute program that everyone (participants, instructors, and exhibitors) receives.

We invite you to participate in this event by exhibiting your services and/or products.  The Exhibitor Opportunity Form describes the many options available.
