Dana Winters seeks to apply and advance the legacy of Fred Rogers in serving children and their helpers through projects involving children’s helpers across many diverse settings, including child care, school systems, community programs, residential care, and children’s hospitals. She communicates and reflects what is simple and deep about work in service of children and their families.

The two-day conference offers more than 150 interactive sessions, multiple tracks, and an extensive exhibit hall to brings thousands of early education teachers, administrators, and directors together with business leaders, policymakers and advocates to learn, share, and network.
