    WEXFORD COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) — This weekend, parents and professionals will have the chance to get resources to engage children.

    Topics that will be discussed range from music and movement, hands on science, and literacy.

    Charlie Appelstein, and Wexford-Missaukee ISD Superintendent Dave Cox will speak at the conference.

    This year the guest speakers and the event focuses on how to work with children with emotional and behavioral challenges.

    “It’s really important that we’re all on the same page, that day care providers, that preschool teachers at local school districts are all on the same page,” said Nikki Schultz, the director of the Great Start Collaborative. “[That way], we are all focusing on the whole child not just at school, not just at day care, not just at home, but that we’re all coming together to work together on what’s the best for that child.”

    This year, organizers expect the highest number of people attending.

    The online registration is full but you can attend without registering. There is a $20 fee.
