Nishnawbe Aski Nation (NAN) Early Years department hosted the 3-day Our Children, Our Way Early Years Conference at the Victoria Inn Hotel & Conference Centre in Thunder Bay on November 22, 23, 24, 2022. The event was intended to support and build capacity for those working in the Early Years while continuing important work towards a NAN Early Years Framework and Strategy.
In total, 175 people registered to attend either in-person or virtually for the 3-day conference. Conference feedback showed delegates thoroughly enjoyed the conference and the opportunity to collaborate and connect with so many Early Years professionals and staff. Feedback also showed that delegates found the plenary and brainstorming sessions very helpful to their work and all delegates requested copies of conference presentations and brainstorming sessions. This report has been developed to include some of these presentations and brainstorming session results in the hopes that others will also find it helpful.
