NAFCC is currently seeking workshop proposals for the 30th National Family Child Care Conference, taking place in Norfolk, Virginia July 15-18, 2020.

We are thrilled to invite workshop proposals that focus on family child care providers and the many qualities that make family child care unique to early care and education. Click here for a preview of the conference tracks.

Attendees are looking for sessions that focus on practical solutions to increase their knowledge and effectiveness; to engage and challenge their thinking; and to nurture their purpose, creativity, and professional excellence. We invite presenters to focus their content for the various roles in family child care, such as:

  • Family child care providers
  • Early Head Start community
  • Child nutrition community
  • Coaches, mentors, and trainers
  • Family child care networks
  • State agencies

Many conference attendees have a strong background in family child care and we encourage a program with many advanced level workshops.

We encourage Spanish speaking presentations and hope to have a variety of sessions in Spanish throughout the conference.

Workshops will be offered Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, July 16-18, 2020. All workshops will be 90 minutes.

NAFCC is pleased to offer all presenters a screen and projector. All other audiovisual (AV) equipment (including laptops, speakers, and internet) will be the presenter's responsibility.

All presenters are required to register for the conference. Primary presenters and one co-presenter per workshop can register at a special discounted rate of $95.00.

The submission deadline is January 31, 2020.
