Get Ready for the Keynote

Camille Catlett, Senior Technical Assistance Specialist at with Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute, will be our keynote speaker!

Camille is committed to supporting early childhood educators and is currently working with faculty and leaders in multiple states to incorporate an explicit and intentional emphasis on culture, equity, language, diversity, and inclusion in early childhood and early childhood special education coursework, field experiences, and program practices.


From All to Each and Every: Making Learning and Development a Joy for Young Wyoming Children and Their Families

The latest edition of Developmentally Appropriate Practice set a high bar for our expectations of early childhood educators: that they will “foster joyful learning and maximize the opportunities for each and every child to achieve their full potential.” Camille will share evidence and insights related to implementing such practices in home, program, and community settings. She will honor and acknowledge the many ways in which educators are delighting young children and partnering effectively with their families while also offering new ideas and resources for supporting optimal development and learning across all domains and content areas.
