You are invited to join the First Early Childhood Education Action Congress, hosted by the Secretary General of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), to be held in Paris on June 6-7th, 2016. This event will bring together 450 leaders from many countries to discuss how to build the political and public support needed to ensure that all children of the world get a good start in life.
Participants will discuss how to attract new advocates for early childhood, what messages are most effective in building support, and what programs can be scaled up to reach large populations of children. The meeting location is the OECD headquarters at the historic Chateau de la Muette.

This workshop offers early childhood policy makers, advocates, and practitioners a different view of pre-K–3 systems building by sharing one state's story of creating and implementing guidelines-based learning in grades 1–3. Come and learn about how teachers and administrators in the early elementary grades are being asked to emphasize inquiry, projects, and a child-responsive approach to teaching.
Sharon Ryan, Shannon Riley-Ayers and Vincent Costanza are all experienced early childhood educators with over 15 years of classroom experience between them. They all have past experience presenting at PDI and the NAEYC annual conference and know how to ensure that participants are engaged and learn something that they might apply to their own work contexts.
