Starfest will feature Dana Winters, Ph.D., Executive Director of the Fred Rogers Institute at Saint Vincent College.

It can be difficult to imagine how a single, small, ordinary moment fits within the complex challenges and rising demands of early learning. Such moments are the most essential building blocks of a healthy community.  At the foundation of every child’s healthy development is the power of human connection. Together, we will find meaningful ways to understand and appreciate these moments. We will also explore the power we have to build the connections that enable all children in our community to thrive. 

Thank you!
