2022 Symposium

The Northern Illinois Nature Preschool Association (NINPA), in partnership with The Morton Arboretum, and sponsored by Antioch University New England, invites you to save the date of Saturday, June 4th for the Midwest Early Childhood Educators Symposium!

Through our 2022 Symposium, Honoring the Earth and Each Other Through Fostering Diversity, Equity, Access and Inclusion, we hope to inspire practitioners to not only model and practice DEAI in their programming, but to also use their voices to make a larger impact in their communities. 

This one day event will allow attendees to both build on their current skill set of best practices, and dig deeper to explore how to address diversity, equity, access and inclusion in their classrooms and communities.  Professionals from across the Midwest will share ideas to advance nature and early childhood environmental education. 

Registration is open now and we anticipate the event will fill quickly! Follow Northern Illinois Nature Preschool Association on Facebook for the most updated details including spotlights on our panelist and sneak peeks at our raffle prizes!
