More than 2,500 parents, children, preschool providers and educators are expected to gather at the Universal Preschool Conference and Education Expo on Sept. 7 and 8 to celebrate the advantages children gain in life by attending preschool. Participants in the two-day event will discuss, share, explore and learn more about the best methods and resources available to better prepare children for kindergarten and beyond.

Additional hands-on workshops will be offered to parents and preschool providers to present them with real-life examples and tips on how to improve the preschool experience for children and their families.

Renowned and accomplished experts on a variety of preschool and early childhood education-related topics that include literacy, reading, math, science, art, music and more will lead the workshops.

Classes offered to preschool teachers, parents and others will include:
