BROCKPORT, NY—The Hunter Institute on Young Children hosted its fifth annual conference at The College at Brockport, State University of New York, on Sept. 29.
The conference focused on the teaching, care, and well being of infant and pre-school children. Some of the many sessions offered included information on recognizing bullying, techniques for handling children's stress, ad integrating dance, music, literature and art. Donna Brink Fox, a nationally recognized leader in early childhood music from the Eastman School of Music, and Sister Diana Dolce from Hope Hall in Rochester, served as keynote speakers at the conference.
A record 300 participants, made up of Brockport students and childcare providers, staff and administrators from across the region, were in attendance.
The Hunter Institute on Young Children has been established through the generosity of Wil and Judy Hunter, long time supporters of The College at Brockport. The Institute supports educational and scholarly activities by College faculty and staff focusing on young children. We sponsor a one-day annual conference for professionals working with young children and the College at Brockport students and faculty. The annual conference will address critical issues about young children. The Institute also fosters collaboration with the early childhood professional community, to lead to additional activities as the Institute is developed.
The institute is co-directed by Brockport professors Natalie Sarrazin and Kevin Warner.
