The Countdown to In-Person ECDL '23!

We are 15 days away from coming together in person for the first time in three years. Over 100 people have already registered for the IN-PERSON 29th Annual Early Childhood Day at the Legislature (ECDL) on Wednesday, March 15, 2023, in Montpelier.

Scholarship and professional development will be available. Contact Taylor Hughey, Alliance Outreach Manager, at, with any questions. 

**Note that although we are using a Zoom Event Registration Platform for registration this year, ECDL is entirely IN-PERSON in Montpelier! We want to be prepared in case we have to make a last-minute switch to a virtual conference if the public health situation changes before March.
