"The WIDA keynotes at the ACAMIS ECE conference gave us many ideas we will bring back. It also supports that it is important to continue developing a child’s first language and that learning a language takes time. I wish our whole school had been able to attend the conference!"  – Participant at the ACAMIS ECE conference.
