The Young Child Expo & Conference began in 2003 as a joint professional development project of Fordham University’s Graduate School of Education and Los Niños Services. The goal is simple – to provide useful information to professionals and parents in order to help all young children learn, grow and reach their full potential. The Young Child Expo and Conference's aim is to bring everyone who works with young children together to learn and grow: teachers, psychologists, special education teachers, social workers, physical, occupational and speech therapists, pediatricians, nurses, educators, academics and students.
