GAEYC offers a variety of training opportunities to help teachers and directors build their skills and competencies to provide high-quality care and education for young children.

Training for Teachers and Directors

Super Saturdays

Our Super Saturday programs provide training for ECE teachers on beginning-level topics, such as health and safety, guidance and discipline, brain development, and a wide variety of other areas. In 2019, we are holding two Infant-Toddler Super Saturdays with a focus on language and interactions. Stay tuned for additional Super Saturday events.

Annual Conference

The GAEYC Annual Together for Children Conference is our biggest professional development event, with multiple sessions for teachers and directors. The conference is held in different locations around Metro Atlanta each fall. Learn more on the conference page.

Pre-Conference Institutes

We hold pre-conference institutes on the Thursday before the annual conference. Many of these pre-conferences are intermediate and advanced training opportunities for teachers and directors. Details will be posted on the conference page in advance of the conference.
