Super Saturday - November 17, 2018

Fox Valley Chapter Super Saturday Mini-Conference

Join us for a day of fun workshops and educational presentations at our Super Saturday Conference! This conference is designed to fit into your busy life - most workshops are available before noon so you can get your continuing education hours without giving up your entire Saturday. If you're not ready for the fun to end at noon, an afternoon session offers several more workshops for an additional fee. Be sure to register before the deadline because registrations will NOT be accepted at the door! See what attendees say about their conference experience.

Conference Keynote


I May Not be Perfect, but Parts of Me are Excellent

Begin your Super Saturday experience with a motivational keynote presentation by Linda DeMoe."The one thing we all strive for daily is… happiness. What we may not realize is that maybe we need to stop the pursuit of happiness and just be happy. Harmony and contentment could be much closer than you realize.

This presentation will give you the opportunity to laugh, to cry and to find some peace within your daily life. Listen to the many ways to build self-esteem in yourself as well as those around you.

Bring an open mind and an open heart and prepare to be transformed! With the attitude that “everyone matters,” I invite you to attend this presentation and reflect upon what is important in your life.

Life is never easy, but it is rarely impossible."

Conference Workshops

Session B offers a choice between two dynamic 2-hour workshops, each presented by an expert in their field. This year's workshops include:

  • "Five of the Best Dramatic Play Experiences" by Stephanie Winkel - Owner/Provider, Twinkeling Stars Child Care and Preschool
  • "Loose Parts: What, Why, and How" by Tammy Dannhoff – Owner/Provider, Kids Are Us Family Child Care

Extended Conference

Once again we are offering an optional Extended Conference session for attendees who can't get enough of a good thing!

Lunch and Roundtables

Extended Session attendees are invited to enjoy a light lunch included in the cost. This year's lunch will be box lunches from Schlotzky's and will consist of deli sandwich with pickle and chips, or a salad with garlic breadstick. Both meals come with a cookie and drink.

During lunch roundtable discussions will offer casual conversation, the exchange of ideas, and the chance to earn more continuing education.

Extended Conference

Following lunch, both morning workshops will be repeated so you have the opportunity to attend both of these fantastic sessions!
