The Making Tomorrow Conference (MTC) is in its 40th year and offers a day of professional development and wellness for Early Childhood Educators. The MTC will be held live Saturday, April 22, 2023, in Victoria, BC.

This year, we explore FINDING the FLOW – a day of nurturing the spirit and mind of early childhood educators and those who work alongside them. Our Early Childhood Educators have laboured with such heart and dedication during the challenges of the last years. We invite participants to reflect on their experience, take stock of where we are now and envision the future of our professional work and holistic wellness.

Conference tickets are $120 each. They include morning coffee and snacks, a keynote presentation, one morning workshop, a buffet lunch catered by the Ocean Pointe Resort, and one afternoon workshop – a total of 7 Professional Development hours.

Recommended participants include:

● Early childhood educators
● Early childhood educator assistants
● School-age child care providers
● Licensed family child care providers
● Registered license-not-required child care providers
● Those care providers who have completed the Responsible Adult course

Our keynote speaker and workshop presenter this year is Lindsay Sealey ( Lindsay Sealey, B.A., M.A. Ed., is a dedicated educator, a passionate keynote speaker, an empowering consultant, and the author of Growing Strong Girls and Rooted, Resilient, and Ready, and Made for More. She holds a B.A. from Simon Fraser University and an M.A. in Educational Leadership from San Diego State University. She is currently pursuing her Ph. D in mind-body medicine.

Lindsay is the founder of Bold New Girls ™ and Brave New Boys ™ – teaching and coaching designed to empower growing minds of all ages and with diverse experiences, to be healthy, happy, resilient, and confident.

Her work now focuses on the connection between mind and body wellness, and she presents her keynote lecture Making Tomorrow: Finding Flow and Flourishing. Her MTC workshops are titled: Mental Health Matters and Keep Going, Keep Growing.

The 2023 MTC is partially funded through the Canada-British Columbia Early Learning and Child Care (ELCC) Agreement between the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia. To ensure attendee participation from small and rural communities, we have several bursaries for travel and accommodation.

A note that our Communities of Practice will be offered virtually in multiple regions on Vancouver Island (Northern, Mid-Island and South-Island). We invite participants to join us as we prepare for the conference and get to know one another, and in our post-conference sessions to chat about our takeaways and the application of new skills in the workplace.
