Seattle Infant Conference

While there are ample education opportunities for our preschool team, HCR identified several years ago that many infant and toddler teachers throughout the country struggle to find quality education opportunities.

To address this issue, the staff and administration of HCR developed and hosted the first annual “Seattle Infant Conference; Connecting with Infants, Toddlers and Their Families.” This is the only local conference of its kind and we are proud to say nine years later the conference is more popular than it has ever been!

We offer a Foundation course for infant teachers in the Northwest through our over-20-year collaboration with Resources for Infant Educarers Organization.

Through this collaboration, we have sponsored the annual RIE training here in Seattle which has resulted in the training of more than 150 Infant teachers from around the world. The children and families have greatly benefited from the additional resources HCR provides for our staff and for the children who are cared for by the graduates of the training program.
