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.

Associate Executive Director

YMCA Childcare Resource Service (CRS) is one of the community support branches for the YMCA of San Diego County, the largest YMCA in the country. We provide a multi-dimensional approach to caring for children. We support child care providers through free child care referrals from families looking for child care, resources on supply and demand for their area and type of child care program, and professional development and coaching services. CRS' Referral Line has Resource and Referral Advisors that are available to answer questions and to support child care providers in every way.
Through multiple programs, we ensure parents can continue to work, provide for their families, and grow their earning potential. We give children a chance they deserve to thrive and prepare for a successful academic career while opening the doors to education, training and technical assistance for child care professionals to improve the quality of their services.
