Testimonials from Past Attendees

 

I am thrilled to have had a chance to attend the expo. My colleague and I learned so much from our sessions and we still have our lanyards hanging on our desks! I think what we appreciated the most was just being immersed in a space with so many early childhood leaders and advocates. We would love to continue to sponsor the event.”

“The sessions were informative and supportive of the work for the early childhood field and is workforce. The valuableness of this conference deserves more publicity. It had much to offer consultants, teachers, and administrators. There was knowledge of current research provided; insight to current issues in the classrooms of NYC; and a deepening of awareness of the gems we see daily. As a manager of a small staff of education & health specialists, I am sure to encourage them to come next year. The quality and knowledge of the presenters were astonishing.”

I was able to attend her session and I registered for the full day on Wednesday after seeing the topics and morning keynote. I thoroughly enjoyed the conference. I felt it was very well- run, organized, a nice range of session topics, enthusiastic and knowledgeable participants in the session, and just overall great experience. We at Music Together will definitely consider adding Young Child Expo to our conference rotation next year. Thanks”
