Overview

Introduction

The Pennsylvania Early Childhood Summit is the largest and most diverse statewide  ECE focused conference in Pennsylvania and brings together practitioners, technical assistance providers, administrators, policymakers and parents from child care, Head Start, pre-k and PK-3. 

Since 2008, the Summit has provided early care and education practitioners, parents and advocates from across the early learning and school-age spectrum – Child Care, Head Start, Early Intervention, Pre-K Counts, Home Visitation, and School Districts – an opportunity to dialogue and learn while building a stronger early learning community. The program includes more than two hundred workshop sessions, inspiring keynotes, and opportunities for personal and professional growth. Attendees can not only acquire new information, but can also connect with colleagues and enhance relationships with others in the early childhood field.

Goals

The Summit is intended to accomplish three goals:

  • Raise awareness among providers and parents on policy issues at the federal and state level so they can be part of the process that maintains and strengthens the education and care systems that are critical to young children and families.
  • Provide education and professional development opportunities for parents and professionals in child care, Head Start programs, and school districts that care for and educate young children.
  • Recognize the tremendous advances Pennsylvania has made in the field of early care and education and inspire others to reach for high quality for our vulnerable and at risk populations.

Location:

The Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel

Agenda

Keynote Speakers

Dr. Laura Jana

Associate Research Professor

Penn State’s Edna Bennett Pierce Prevention Research Center

Pediatrician, educator, author, and health communicator, Dr. Laura Jana finds connections across disciplines and crystallizes big ideas into far-reaching, real world applications.

Currently an Associate Research Professor at Penn State’s Edna Bennett Pierce Prevention Research Center, Dr. Jana was most recently Director of Innovation in Public Health at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, and continues to serve as a strategic consultant to numerous government, nonprofit, and corporate clients, she has navigated the traditionally siloed worlds of academia, medicine, publishing, and commerce. Currently focused on innovation in parenting, pediatrics, public health, health system transformation and community development, what she sees is a bevy of great minds circling the same topics from different angles. As a translator of ideas and facilitator of dialogue, she’s on a mission to unite these worlds in order to change the public conversation about the skills needed for success in the Digital Age.
