Our early childhood and afterschool professional development offerings are expanding in 2019 and we would like to share what you have to look forward to!

We are your destination for high-quality and relevant professional development. Rejuvenate and refresh your knowledge and skills, and network with others in the field with a variety of offerings this year.

Early Childhood Offerings
School-Age Offerings

Don’t forget! MnAEYC and MnSACA members receive a discount to all public trainings. Learn more about this and many other benefits available to our members.


What’s New in 2019?

  • NAEYC Accreditation Labs – For either those pursuing initial accreditation or those preparing for their renewal, our NAEYC Accreditation Labs will be held twice a month all year long beginning in January! These labs are informal opportunities for you to ask questions about your NAEYC accreditation journey. One lab each month will have a general accreditation focus – bring whatever you are working on. The second lab of the month will have a more specific accreditation focus. Topics will include: portfolios, classrooms & staff interactions, policies & procedures, and staff qualifications & professional development plans.

  • Webinar-Based Trainings – We know your schedules are busy! We are continuing to expand our offerings via live webinars to make it easier for you to participate.
  • New Training Topics – From how to create a professional development plan, to trauma-informed care, to addressing challenging behaviors, to SEL, to planning for youth-driven activities, we are excited to add many new topics to our calendar in 2019 for both early childhood and afterschool professionals.
