World Forum Announces Primrose Schools as Lead Sponsor of 2017 World Forum on Early Care and Education

The World Forum Foundation is excited to announce Primrose Schools as lead sponsor for the 2017 World Forum on Early Care and Education conference taking place May 9-12, 2017 in Auckland, New Zealand. The World Forum on Early Care and Education is a biennial conference that brings together educators, leaders and early child care practitioners to discuss the delivery of quality services to children in diverse settings. Primrose Schools, a premier early education and care provider with more than 300 schools across the U.S., is providing a special matching opportunity for early registrations as part of its partnership.

Participants who register by March 15, 2016 will have their registration fees matched by Primrose. The money raised through this early registration matching program will be donated to the World Forum Fellowship Fund to help delegates from communities with limited financial resources attend the conference.

“We’re thrilled to sponsor the 2017 World Forum and look forward to working with other early educators and thought leaders to carry out our Primrose mission of forging a path that leads to a brighter future for all children,” said Jo Kirchner, president and CEO of Primrose Schools. “I truly believe the ground-breaking work we’re doing together will help empower children all over the world, and we’re honored to help even more delegates attend this important event this year.”

The four-day conference enables delegates to share the challenges they face and their creative solutions based on their cultural and economic settings. They will also have the opportunity to dig deeper on important issues through breakout sessions on topics ranging from caring for children impacted by HIV/AIDS to connecting children with nature and the issue of children’s rights.

“The most rewarding outcome of the World Forum events is the building of lasting relationships among people from very diverse backgrounds,” said Roger Neugebauer, co-founder of the World Forum Foundation. “When you have the opportunity to interact on a personal level with peers from over 80 nations, your misperceptions and stereotypes about different cultures quickly fade away and your world expands immeasurably.”

Registration information and conference updates are available on the World Forum Foundation website:
