Message from the CEO

Message from the CEO

We eagerly invite all early childhood educators, researchers, policy makers, consultants, and advocates to attend the 2017 NAEYC Professional Learning Institute in San Francisco.

Highlights

New This Year

Schedule at-a-Glance to acquire the knowledge and practice the skills you need to advocate for early childhood educators everywhere.

Our time is now. In a season of unprecedented change, how will we lead the charge for the early childhood education profession? How will we ensure that our nation’s youngest learners receive equitable opportunities to reach their full potential? In the face of such important questions, two things are certain: We cannot do it alone, and we need to act now. We dive into this year’s focus on elevating the early learning profession with a new, FREE pre-Institute workshop—Power to the Profession Boot Camp—where you’ll connect with other professionals

Our Opening Plenary Session will inspire you to think outside the box, as Stacie G. Goffin leads a panel discussion on the path other professions have taken toward defining and advancing their fields. By investigating the nursing and architecture fields, we will learn how early childhood educators can elevate our field and harness our collective expertise to increase our effectiveness in teaching and nurturing the youngest learners. The Research Symposium is your opportunity to connect critical research to policy and practice that affect you and your work. Highlights include conversations with experts regarding what we know and don't know about

our workforce; how to help educators and advocates navigate systems change at the state level; and how to increase diversity by looking to research-based solutions from inside and outside our field. With such a range of offerings and development opportunities, you will leave feeling inspired, recharged, and ready to take action! Mark your calendars—I’ll see you in San Francisco!

Message from the CEO

The City by the Bay has a little something for everyone. From rolling hills and cable cars to a rich cultural history, San Francisco boasts a bustling arts scene, amazing feats of architecture and engineering, an exploding culinary landscape, and more. This June, you’ll be in the heart of it all when you join NAEYC at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis in the bustling downtown district south of Market Street. Hop over to the nearby renowned Union Square—the crown jewel of San Francisco shopping districts—to shop, sip, or grab a bite to eat in the heart of downtown. Ready to eat? Visit the famous Fisherman’s Wharf to enjoy the daily fresh catch, followed by a short walk over to Ghirardelli Square, home of the landmark three-story former chocolate factory. Looking for something with an ethnic twist? San Francisco’s Chinatown is the oldest such district in the country. With endless food

options and colorful shops, there’s plenty of excitement to discover. If you’re looking to get out and enjoy the breezy bay air, there’s no more quintessential symbol of the Golden State than the mighty Golden Gate Bridge. This nearly milewide feat of modern engineering traverses the waterway connecting the San Francisco Bay to the Pacific Ocean. Take a stroll, rent a bicycle, or simply soak up the views from the Presidio of San Francisco, the bayfront public park and former military fort at the foot of the bridge. Venture to the eastern shore to visit Golden Gate Park, comprising over 1,000 acres of green space (that’s even larger than Central Park in New York City!).

History buff? Explore the lives of some of history’s most infamous gangsters with a tour of Alcatraz in the San Francisco Bay. This island fortress houses the eponymous abandoned federal prison, the site of the oldest operating lighthouse on the West Coast, and early military fortifications. You can also catch some major-league excitement with the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park, where they’ll take on the 2015 World Series Champions, the Kansas City Royals, June 13–14. Of course, the rolling hills of San Francisco’s downtown are best experienced from the seat of a historic Cable Car. The oldest manually operated streetcar system in the country navigates three lines spanning the city and holds a coveted spot on the National Register of Historic Places. With something new around every turn, adventure awaits in the Golden State. We can’t wait for you to join us! For more information about discovering San Francisco, visit NAEYC.org/institute/explore.

Getting Here Ground Transportation The Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) operates lines across the city, including a direct route between San Francisco International Airport or Oakland International Airport and downtown San Francisco.

San Francisco is one of the country’s most accessible and bustling metropolises. The San Francisco International Airport (SFO) is located just 15 miles from the San Francisco Marriott Marquis, and is the most common choice for travelers. Oakland International Airport (OAK) is a smaller nearby alternative, 20 miles from the conference location.

Taxi

SuperShuttle

A taxi to/from San Francisco International Airport and the Marriott Marquis will cost approximately $50 per trip, and ranges from 30 to 40 minutes.

NAEYC has arranged for SuperShuttle to provide discounted shared-ride van service between the San Francisco International Airport and the Marriott Marquis.

The trip to/from Oakland International Airport will cost around $60, and ranges from 35 to 50 minutes.

To receive the 10% discount on service, you must make your reservation online at http://groups.supershuttle.com/ sftravelportal.html.. One-way service to/from San Francisco International Airport and the Marriott Marquis is $15.30; round-trip service is $30.60.

From SFO, go green and catch the Pittsburg/Bay Point (Yellow) line from SFO to the Powell Street stop for a 30-minute direct ride that will save 8.5 pounds of CO2 emissions per passenger. It’ll save you some green too, at $8.95 per ticket! From OAK, you’ll catch the Airport/ Coliseum (Tan) line, where you’ll transfer at the Coliseum to catch the Fremont/ Daly City OR Dublin-Pleasanton/Daly City line to the Powell Street stop. This route takes approximately 40 minutes and costs $10.20 per ticket. For more information on getting around San Francisco, visit NAEYC.org/institute/explore
