ARCQE 2021 Virtual Conference | Association of Early Childhood Educators of Alberta

ARCQE 2021 Virtual Conference

In light of pan-Canadian discussions taking place across the country regarding a National Child Care System, ARCQE is pleased to announce our upcoming conference theme: “Acknowledging Children’s Right to Well-being & Citizenship…Towards a National Vision!

This year also marks the 30th anniversary of Canada’s ratification of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. As we prepare to celebrate our country’s commitment to upholding the rights of children, we reflect on the significance of recognizing children’s rights as mighty learners and citizens. We invite you to join our event as we explore thought-provoking reflections, insights and pedagogical discussions honouring our future global citizens!

Relative to this year’s format, while we are optimistic of pandemic restrictions beginning to ease, given the need to pre-plan amidst continued uncertainty of what the Fall may hold, ARCQE has decided once again to proceed with a virtual format on the Accelevents platform which many of you participated on during the last conference in February.

Stay tuned over the coming months for further updates on speakers and sessions that will be part of this year’s exciting event!
