The First Things First Early Childhood Summit brings together professionals, stakeholders and supporters of early childhood education and health to share innovative strategies, research and best practices that help kids be ready for school and set for life.

Ensuring that our youngest kids arrive at kindergarten prepared to succeed requires all parts of the early childhood system to work together, and the Summit offers an exciting opportunity to build both the knowledge and relationships critical to our collective success.

Make your plans to join us in August at the Phoenix Convention Center.
