Early Learning Institute

*EVENT CANCELED*

After careful consideration of the ongoing spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 6th annual Early Learning Institute, originally scheduled for Friday, June 5th, 2020. Those currently registered for the ELI will not need to take any action steps as your registrations have been refunded. Please let us know if you have any questions by emailing our business manager, Tina Goodacre (kgoodacr@utk.edu) for refund information. We are saddened by the need to cancel, but know that it is in the best interest of all involved. We know this is a tough time for our field and hope everyone is hanging in there. We look forward to connecting with you all in the future and please let us know if you have any questions.
Wishing everyone peace and wellness,
The Early Learning Center Team

The Early Learning Institute is an annual event held each summer and began in 2015. The mission of the institute is to create an intimate, supportive, professional context for early childhood educators and interested collaborators to join together and pursue a variety of topics relevant to early education. The aim is to connect, inspire, and encourage educators as they explore and cultivate pedagogy for young children, their families, and early childhood practitioners. Check back soon for information about the next Early Learning Institute. To learn more about the history of the ELI, please visit this link
