The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will present the virtual Childhood Champions Child Care Conference on Sept. 26 from 9 a.m.-noon.

The cost is $15 and the event will be held on Microsoft Teams, so attendees will need the ability to access that online platform.

Online registration is available through the AgriLife Extension Brown County page or by mail and must be received by Sept.23.


The conference will feature three speakers:

– Jodi Nerren, AgriLife Extension child development program specialist, Bryan-College Station, will present Behavior That Bites.

– Haylee Maddox, ARK Shelter community educator, Brown County, will present One Adverse Childhood Experience.

– Milissa Wright, AgriLife Extension family and community health agent for Concho County, will discuss mindfulness.

“The 2020 Childhood Champions Child Care Virtual Conference is open to all childcare providers and educators who are dedicated to providing top-of-the-line care for our children,” said Kailey Miller, AgriLife Extension family and community health agent for San Saba County.

The virtual event is hosted by the AgriLife Extension office for Brown County, with the agency offices for McCulloch, Llano, San Saba and Burnet counties also participating.
