The 2017 Annual Conference was held March 10 and 11 at the Villa Roma Resort & Conference Center in Callicoon, New York.
The Pre-Conference full day session, "Mathematical Concepts in Early Childhood Education" was presented by Donna Fowler.
During the opening session members ratified the updated FCCANYS By-Laws and voted to confirm new board members Joan Valentine and Travis Sweet.
Keynote sessions included Nancy Cupolo's "Responding to the Bully: Prevention Strategies that Work", and Jeanine Fitzgerald's "The Impending Crisis: Rising IQ and Declining EQ".
Concurrent sessions aligned with OCFS training topic requirements and several aligned with QUALITYStarsNY standards for Family Child Care Providers.
The Friday evening dinner and workshop got people moving with Rebecca Maracello of Little Feet Dance Street.
