About CCSS 2017

The Creating Connections to Shining Stars Conference (CCSS) is Virginia’s premiere collaborative early childhood birth through five conference. Through the leadership of the Virginia Cross-Sector Professional Development (VCPD) team, conference committee members representing state agencies and early childhood organizations have partnered to offer a rich opportunity to explore evidence-based practices in inclusive settings for young children, both with and without disabilities.

The 2017 CCSS Conference is planned for July 19-21, 2017 at Hotel Roanoke, and features an array of sessions including topics related to infants and toddlers, preschoolers, and general early childhood practices. Through preconference seminars, the keynote presentation, concurrent workshops, and exhibitors, there will be something fun and engaging for everyone.

Participation in CCSS provides opportunities to network with your colleagues, renew your commitment to professionalism and lifelong learning, and acquire new ideas and strategies for implementation in your work with young children and their families. Please join us!
