Event Sponsor: NeighborSchools

Thank you to NeighborSchools for sponsoring EarlyEdCon 2018!

NeighborSchools partners with early childhood Educators to open exceptional in-home childcare programs. We believe that in-home programs are the model of the future: children benefit from better ratios, mixed age groups, and experienced ECE professionals; Educators get to form deep connections with children, and can earn more than typical preschool jobs income; discerning parents get to work with trusted educators, in a more convenient setting, without having to sacrifice quality. We’re on a mission to bring ECE back to the neighborhood – come and join us!

Event Sponsor: Children’s Vision Massachusetts

Thank you to Children’s Vision Massachusetts for sponsoring EarlyEdCon 2018!

In 2009, Massachusetts was selected by Prevent Blindness America to be one of five pilot states of the National Center for Children’s Vision and Eye Health to participate in an award from the Maternal and Child Health Bureau. This led to the establishment of the Children’s Vision Massachusetts coalition. The coalition’s mission is to create a systematic approach to children’s vision services that assures all children have the opportunity to develop and retain their best possible vision to support healthy development and academic growth.

Children’s Vision Massachusetts is a forty member coalition representing optometry, ophthalmology, nursing, pediatrics, public health, family physicians, and others from multiple affiliations and including parents and advocates. During the past two years, the group has worked to define and analyze current practice related to comprehensive vision services for children in Massachusetts and has framed, designed, and created a strategy to guide the development of a statewide plan for improvement which includes the establishment of a public health infrastructure, data and case management systems, and the development and implementation of performance measures.

Mass Audubon is the largest provider of environmental education in New England. Our statewide network of wildlife sanctuaries, nature centers, and museums serve as the base for our work in education and community outreach. Our education programs take place at our sites as well as in communities across the Commonwealth in partnership with schools, classrooms, and community-based organizations. Almost half a million visitors of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds visit our sanctuaries each year, and we reach 235,000 youth, families, and adults per year, including about 98,000 K-12 students and over 25,000 preschoolers. We operate four licensed preschools that serve 300 families in Boston, Metrowest, and Western Massachusetts. Our goal as a nature-based early childhood education provider is to share the benefits of nature-based learning and play (NBLP) with children and families from all backgrounds. We support early childhood learning and play in nature through a suite of classroom and outdoor programs for early learners focused on exploratory play in nature and early science “habits of mind”; the development of integrated, nature-based STEM preschool curriculum units; professional development for early childhood educators; and parent-specific resources.
