Location: R2i2 (763 Fashion Dr. Columbia, SC 29229)

Theme: Moving Forward Together

The SC Early Childhood Inclusion Conference is designed to support early childhood leadership teams in building program capacity to increase inclusive preschool practices to support all young children and their families to belong and thrive within their communities. We aim to provide opportunities for participants to learn about evidence-based practices that support successful early childhood transitions and promote the delivery of instruction to preschoolers in their least restrictive environment.

The goals for this year’s conference are to:

  • Empower participants to explore local resources and partnerships to support collaborative efforts that increase the availability of inclusive opportunities for young children with disabilities
  • Provide participants with developmentally appropriate early learning practices that create a strong foundation for each and every child to meet their full potential
  • Provide a platform for all participants to build a strong culture of inclusion and belonging
