We are happy to announce that the 2019 UW-Stout Family and Consumer Sciences Education Conference will continue to collaborate with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction Child Care Conference. We hope this collaboration will allow maximum attendance for FCSE educators across the region. Attendance at the annual Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction Child Care Conference is required for Family & Consumer Sciences educators teaching programs in Assistant Child Care Teacher [ACCT], Infant and Toddler [IT], and Child Care Teacher [CCT] skills certificate programs. Certain sessions and activities may be required if you are attending because you teach within the programs listed.

Choose from concurrent sessions on exciting new information in the field, as well as roundtable sessions presented by classroom practitioners with curriculum ideas to use in your classroom. Exhibits will be available with the latest educational resources and materials.

Special Invitation for High School students to visit UW-Stout:
Bring your high school students interested in careers in FCS Education. In addition to participating in the conference, high school students will have the opportunity to tour campus, visit classes, and visit with current university students.

NOTE: Parking information will be emailed the week prior to the event, to all registered participants.
