“Thank you for making this conference in a virtual format! This has been the best continuing education opportunity for us in a long time! I encourage you to continue doing this conference in this virtual format even after COVID. We are a small, private preschool with only a few teachers. It is difficult for us to afford the time, subbing, travel, and cost of attending the WECA conferences in person. Through this virtual format, our teachers have been able to access the content during our vacation days, evenings, or weekends. They could watch just small amounts at a time as it fit into their schedule. Our teachers have taken advantage of this opportunity and completed many of the webinars available to them. Thank you so much!”
