Special Events and Training Series

The Maine Statewide ECE Conference returns in 2021! Starting with Family Child Care registration rolls out June 14th! 

Check out the event page for more information about the conference including daily schedule and more!

This year the conference registration had a limited number of FREE registrations for those working in licensed child care programs in Maine, including family child care, center-based programs, Early Head Start and Head Start, and license exempt providers! It’s exciting to see them all taken! Thank you to The DHHS Office of Child and Family Services and DOE Head Start Collaboration Office for providing this opportunity to child care educators in Maine!

At this time FCCAM PLC has a limited number of 25% off scholarships for members available. Email us at fccam.professionallearning@gmail.com and we’ll send you the discount code. As of 7/20 there were about 50 registrations still available for each day.
