2021 Carousel Conference Update
This is the time of year we normally ask early childhood educators to save the date for our annual April Carousel Conference in Aberdeen. The cancellation of last year’s conference, due to COVID-19, was a great disappointment to all of us.
Since the onset of the pandemic, many local, state, and national conferences have moved to an online platform, making more conferences than ever before accessible to people all over the country. While we thoughtfully considered adding Carousel to the online opportunities, we believe that that some of the best things about the Carousel Conference are the in-person gatherings and reunions that happen every year. We love seeing you in workshops and joining you for breakfast and lunch. And we especially enjoy bringing this conference directly to the Grays Harbor community. For that reason, and because increased opportunities have reduced the attendance at individual events, we plan to postpone the next Carousel Conference until we can be together in person. In 2022, we hope to see you at Grays Harbor College and look forward to that reunion.
In the meantime, we are working hard to meet your professional development needs by offering many live, online classes. Please check our website frequently for new opportunities and consider joining others throughout our region at our online classes. Our excellent instructors have stepped up to master this new format and would enjoy having you join them.
Thank you for your ongoing service to your community during these challenging times.
