2017 Regional Conference Sponsors

The Childcare Network held its 17th Regional Early Childhood and Child Care Conference: Step Up to Quality on March 4, 2017.

We partnered with Germanna Community College’s Early Childhood program, the Workforce Development Center at Germanna and Smart Beginnings Rappahannock Area to offer a full day of workshops that provided attendees the opportunity to learn from experts in their field and then share what they learned with co-workers, families and the children in their care.

Thank you to our 2017 Regional Conference Sponsors!
