The Mississippi Early Learning Alliance partnered with Loving Hands Educational Services to host our first ever Mississippi Early Learning Resources (Shared Services) Conference last weekend, on Saturday, June 11. We are so grateful to our presenters, sponsors, vendors, and attendees for making this conference a success!
Over 100 early childhood and childcare professionals attended the conference, and learned from eight organizations during interactive breakout sessions throughout the day. In between sessions, attendees networked with each other and explored early childhood resources available from local and national vendors.
We were thrilled and energized to connect with so many people working on behalf of children and families in Mississippi. It was clear to see that our attendees, presenters, and vendors are committed to giving young children their strongest possible start in life!
