Why we started this conference
In January 2007, Lisa and Seamus Brown opened Lisa’s Playhouse in Roachville NB. Lisa’s Playhouse has grown to include Tír na nÓg Forest School Sussex, Apohaqui After School Program and Tír na nÓg K-8 Experiental School. Lisa has an intense interest in highlighting the importance of nurturing a love of nature in children. She also knows the value of continuing education for her staff.
After a recent trip to Italy, for an early childhood conference, Lisa wanted to create a way for our educators to have the same level of professional development here in NB without having to travel outside our province. She felt the educators that work with our small children needed to be celebrated for the work they do. And as a result of her vision, The Shining Light on Early Childhood Education Conference was born.
The Shining Light Conference is designed to reflect how vital the field of Early Childhood Education is because we are teaching future doctors, teachers, tradespeople and business owners! The conference is planned with this in mind- to help fellow ECE to connect in a day filled with uplifting, revitalizing, educational workshops that will stay with each one long after the day is done!
