The Huntington Area Early Childhood Conference (HAECC) is celebrating its 34th year! And we are excited to announce that this year we will be connecting the Tri-State. We are welcoming Ohio and Kentucky early childcare and education professionals to attend HAECC 2016.

Each interaction, each event, each opportunity, each engagement that is experienced by a young child profoundly impacts not just the child, but all of us personally and collectively. The society of tomorrow is being determined by the relationships we create and establish with children today.

HAECC is an annual, two day conference, presented to the Tri- State,to provide early childcare and education professionals with essential tools, skills, and policies. We want to ensure that each engagement with children and families has a positive impact on them today and for the future.

Building Bridges is dedicated to developing a well- balanced agenda for fulfilling professional development through partnerships with early childhood practitioners, business leaders, and policymakers,Our conference committee is dedicated to presenting topics that impact early care and education.

A Note from the Committee Chair:

We are thankful to the session presenters, advertisers, sponsors, exhibitors and community leaders who are helping us make this year a great year for designing professional development opportunities in a central location.Our theme this year focuses on building bridges and uniting early care and education with "Pete the Cat" we believe anything is "Paws....ible!"
