Bringing Our Best to You

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Candelen has decided to replace our in-person conferences with a free virtual learning series, UpLearning.

UpLearning brings the best of our conferences to you and allows you to have a voice in determining the topics most relevant in these rapidly changing times. The series will include presentations by national and local experts presenting important topics like inclusion, behavior management, STEAM, language and literacy, and more in a convenient, online setting that works with your schedule. In addition, the series offers 12 professional training hours.

You Drive the Topics

Topics are driven by our participants through surveys and feedback opportunities. Together, we will develop a unique virtual learning community that creates a supportive network for all those who want to help our littlest learners shine their brightest.

You Receive the Tools 

Whether you are a professional, parent, relative, friend, or other home-based caregiver, tackle topics such as communication, how to manage big behaviors, STEAM, language and literacy, and more.

You Pay Nothing

We believe that every child deserves the brightest outlook possible and are offering this training at no cost to those with a dedicated passion and a hunger to improve their care.
