2019 California Kindergarten Conference

We want to thank the over 900 of you who made our 37th annual conference the amazing experience it was! Dr. Jean, Ken Wesson, Principal Gerry and all of our outstanding presenters left us feeling uplifted and rejuvenated. It was wonderful to see so many of you there. We hope you’re planning to join us in 2020!

We also would like to thank our sponsors for the support they have given to the conference!
