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.

Door to the Future Preschool
Owner & Executive Director
Jeanette Crystal Bradley's “The First 12 Days of Preschool: Reading, Singing, and Dancing Can Prepare Kiddos and Parents!” gained worldwide recognition for number one new release and number one bestseller in multiple categories. She has also gained a five-star reader's favorite review.

For nearly 25 years, Jeanette's youthful spirit and playful demeanor have connected her with preschool children in enjoyable and distinctive ways. Her hard work and dedication to bringing a new level of excitement into the classroom by adding animal fun to the learning experience help fulfill her goal of delivering joy and smiles into the world. As a recording artist, Jeanette created a well-produced song and music video to accompany the book, bringing it to life, and helping children and parents become excited about preschool.

She brings this same passion to her writing, singing, and pursuit of higher education. She is the Director of a corporate preschool in San Diego, California. She loves laughter, dessert (especially chocolate), and spending time with her incredible family and friends.

Jeanette's greatest desire is to see children succeed in beginning preschool without anxiety or fear of the unknown. Her book is designed to help children and parents alike find peace and excitement in transition. The First 12 Days of Preschool also supports the Olivia Hudson Foundation, which funds pediatric brain cancer research, helps families in financial need, and increases awareness of brain cancer in children. Copies of the book will be donated to hospitals treating children and supporting families.
