It’s time to get LOUD for the future of home child care! Get LOUD for the future we believe in.

We’ve been through a lot together in the past few years. It’s time to celebrate our achievements, resilience, and plans for the future at HCCAO’s first back-to-in-person conference: Get LOUD in the Neighbourhood!

Although we’ve enjoyed connecting virtually together over the past few years, there is something special and unique that is sparked when we are present. HCCAO is pleased to bring the conference back to the neighbourhood.

This is an important time in our history. One that will be remembered with great joy and pride as carry home child care into the Canada-Wide Early Learning and Child Care Plan. If there has ever been a time to expand and grow as an Association, it is now! This is our time to influence the change that is needed for home child care to grow across Ontario.

We invite you and your colleagues to join us in October in Hamilton for two days of exploration, connection, and most importantly, play!

Together, throughout the conference, we will explore topics in discussion, collaboration, and knowledge sharing, including:

* Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging
* Well-being
* Pedagogical Leadership and Reflective Practice
* Home Child Care in the Canada-Wide Plan
* System Building for Home Child Care
* Arts Education and Children’s Rights
* Storytelling and Communications
