Building the Preschool to Promise Pipeline Conference 

United 4 Children’s annual Building the Preschool to Promise Pipeline Conference aims to disrupt the preschool to prison pipeline by providing education and resources needed to build equity in early childhood education.  

Poverty and systemic racism contribute to inequitable access to quality early childhood education (ECE). Some children have access to an excellent ECE, but others don’t. Children without access to quality ECE can experience developmental delays, excess conflict, lack of self-regulation, and lack kindergarten-readiness.

These social-emotional and academic foundations are linked to major life outcomes that impact the larger community — including educational attainment, job readiness, earning potential, healthy relationships, and the likelihood of incarceration. 

United 4 Children’s annual conference has traditionally been geared toward early childhood educators in the region. However, this year’s conference will be open to all community members interested in learning more about early childhood education’s key role in building a promising future for our community as a whole.

Additionally, the conference’s training sessions will be Missouri clock-hour approved professional development hours for early childhood educators. At the conclusion of the conference, we will host a networking event. 

Will you join us in building quality early learning experiences for our region’s children as the first annual sponsor of United 4 Children’s Building the Preschool to Promise Pipeline Conference?
