Bebe Feuerstein Simon Early Childhood Institute

Upcoming: March 10, 2025

The Bebe Feuerstein Simon Early Childhood Institute is one of several BJE programs that offers quality professional development to early childhood educators. In 2024, this annual conference attracted over 650 early childhood teachers for a day of learning, skill building and professional growth.

The theme for this year’s conference was “Chazakim B’Yachad – Stronger Together” and we hosted our conference at a new site, HAMAKOM.  In lieu of a full keynote address we offered an extended dairy breakfast buffet followed by three workshops from our esteemed presenters, lunch, and a closing reflection session.

This year’s special conference was in collaboration with The Paradigm Project, a national ECE organization. Some of this year’s speakers, coming locally and from across the country, included Jenna Turner, Veronica Maravankin, Denise Moyes Schnur, Wes Chernin, and Rabbi Rebecca Schatz.  More information about next year's ECE Conference will be posted in the coming months.
