Family Service Association has been providing early care and education services in Riverside county for over 25 years. We currently operate 10 child development centers throughout the county serving more than 1500 children each day. Our commitment to children and families led us to recognize the need for on-going professional development of those who work directly with children as well as support for those who are a child’s first teacher, their parents.

In winter of 2000 Family Service Association held their first Child Development Conference. The Conference is dedicated to supporting early childhood professionals, parents, early childhood students, administrators, and others who work with young children in educational, medical and home settings. Each year we bring in recognized leaders in Child Development to speak to our participants about best practices as well as other topics of interest to those who work with and parent children.

This year is our 19th annual conference and we are excited to present our keynote speaker: Rae Pica, education consultant, author and host of her own radio show on the BAM Radio Network. For more information about our keynote speaker or to view her newsletters and blog please log onto her website: Rae is the author of “What if Everybody Understood Child Development?” and “Active Learning Across the Curriculum.”

Workshops at this year’s conference include: Nurturing Children through Literacy, Intentionality in Action for Preschool Children, The Impact of Trauma in Early Childhood Development, Preventing Challenging Behaviors and more.

Breakfast and lunch are included in the registration fee of $45.00. For more information about the conference or FSA CDC, please contact – Jessica Carrasco: or 951-779-9623.
