Because the Clay County CAPE grant funds this Early Childhood Education Literacy Conference, it is free and open to the public. However, seating is limited. Interested persons should call the LEAAP Program at (812) 446-2536 or email millsam@clay.k12.in.us to register.

Teachers, Child Care Providers, Parents and Anyone interested in helping children learn will be interested in attending this eye opening workshop.

The Learning Through Adventure Company is an educational consulting firm, created in 1997 by Tom and Lisa Murphy in order to bring high-energy, exciting and informative hands-on workshops to teachers, directors, parents and family childcare providers. They support the creation of child-centered environments where children are actively engaged in real, meaningful experiences, not "cute" fluffy time fillers.

The Murphys base the workshop experience on the belief that children have the right to...

1) long periods of uninterrupted free play time.

2) adults who are acting as facilitators.

3) freedom to explore with few restrictions.

4) lots and lots of outdoor time.

5) be engaged in experiences that are real.

They are committed to providing parents and educators with the knowledge, facts and research that supports this educational philosophy. Since 1997 Lisa has presented her workshops to thousands of folks throughout the United States. Learning Through Adventure is based out of San Diego, California.

Breakfast and lunch may be purchased at the conference.

Lisa Murphy and her company can be contacted directly at 800-477-7977 to receive more information about their exciting workshops.
