Meeting the Needs of Early Childhood Professionals

The Early Childhood Professional Association ( TECPA) provides programs that serve as the foundation for early childhood professionals, as well as cutting edge topics to inspire us all to be the best we can be in turn benefitting the children and families in our early childhood communities. Our speakers are vetted and are based all over the U.S. In order to minimize exposure to our speakers and our participants, we are currently offering all programming via Zoom. Using the remote tools that we have all become accustomed to through the pandemic we have opened up a whole new world in the early childhood professional development landscape.

Group size is limited and registration is on a first come/first served basis so sign up today! Registration ends when group capacity is filled and/or no later than 24 hours ahead of the program. All program registrations are final, no refunds will be issued, and program fees may not be traded from one program to another. A certificate of attendance will be emailed to you after the event.
