This annual conference is a powerful opportunity for professional growth and organizational development. We Look forward to seeing you at Epworth by the Sea on beautiful St. Simons Island.

The purpose of the 2018 GHSA Spring Conference is to provide an opportunity for individuals responsible for teaching and nurturing children, at all levels, to discuss current issues, exchange information, and learn valuable insights from experts in the field of early childhood care, education, and development.

This conference will include plenary and workshop sessions relevant for management, staff, and parents working with today’s children to pave the way for student success and a promising tomorrow. A comprehensive array of professional development opportunities will be provided for participants who live, teach, work with, and serve children from birth to
