The 19th Annual Early Years Conference focus is Social Justice in Early Learning and Care.

Social justice in early childhood education is about ensuring that all children and families receive the educational and social opportunities responsive to their cultural identity. High quality programs put social justice teaching front and center by prioritizing anti-bias and culturally sensitive teaching.
