6 Reasons to attend an Early Childhood Education and Care conference

Conference season is taking off for 2022 with many associations and organisations committing to their annual conference. Due to the pandemic, most of these events have been postponed or moved virtually. With a better understanding of safety, more conferences are being taken place in-person in 2022. 

1. Learn

The information you get from live conferences is invaluable. You’ll learn from amazing speakers and gain insight in different areas of your business. From managing your service and improving culture to improving profitability and acquiring new services, conferences offer a wide range of topics. You’ll also be able to take your new knowledge and tips back to your team, improving their skills and your centre’s culture. 

2. Gain a New Perspective

Along with the tips, tricks, and tactics you’ll learn, conferences also help you gain a new perspective on managing a service in the Early Childhood Education and Care sector. You’ll get new ideas for ways to increase efficiency, better retain staff, implement new programs, increase offerings, etc. 

3. Expand Your Network

Conferences are a great way to connect with coaches, consultants, and speakers in the ECEC industry. These leaders will be able to help you as you manage and grow your service. In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to speak with other owners, managers, directors and peers, exchange ideas, and discuss experiences. This can be super beneficial when navigating owning and maintaining your Early Childhood Education and Care Service. 

4. Find New Tools

Many conferences will have exhibitors present throughout the event. You will be able to connect with these exhibitors, learn about their offerings, and add new tools to your service. These tools can include awesome childcare management software like Kangarootime, a CRM like IntelliKids, compliance and best practice software like 1Place Childcare, education materials, insurance information, and much more. All of these tools are necessary for your service to grow and thrive. A conference is a great way to get a first-hand look at the tools.

5. Explore Different Cities

Early Childhood Education and Care conferences take place all over the world! You’ll get to travel to new places, see new sites, and meet plenty of new people when attending these events. 

6. Have Fun!

Conferences are a great time to take a break from the craziness of working in Early Childhood Education and Care. In addition to networking and gaining access to great content, you’ll get to participate in fun events and relax when the day is done.
