Promoting and protecting the health and safety of all Idahoans

What are my transport/parking options?

The Riverside Hotel provides a free shuttle to and from the Boise Airport. The hotel also has ample free parking.

How do I register?

Click on the Program Schedule tab to explore sessions offered, then click on the Register Now button for access to the Eventbrite registration page.  Tip: Jot down the workshop sessions you want to attend (i.e., A1, B3, etc.) for a quick reference to your workshop selections as you register on Eventbrite. 

Why can't I print a confirmation of my selections?

It's all about choices in designing the page. We had to choose between offering details about each training session or a print feature that would print your selections. We chose details.

Can I update my registration information?

Changes to your workshop selections may be made up until the Early Bird registration deadline of July 31, 2018. Options may be more limited as sessions fill and are closed.

How do I know if a session is full?

Online registration indicates which sessions are full/closed.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?


I don't remember which sessions I registered for.  

Your registration confirmation has this information, and your selected workshop session numbers are printed on the front of your name badge. For those who register after November 6, please visit with the Registration Desk staff.

I'm not registered. May I sit in on a session?

While we appreciate your interest, you must be registered and pay to attend.  Online registration is open through the end of the conference.

My conference bag doesn't have a Conference Program, where can I get a copy?

We strive to make the Early Years Conference green by sharing information primarily by email, electronic registration, and web. This helps keep your cost of attending low, and it's environmentally friendly.  If you are unable to access the Early Years website, the Registration Desk staff can answer your questions.

Are there handouts for every session?

It is a presenter's discretion whether to provide handouts (printed or online.) Presenters may choose to post materials online either before or after the conference. If in doubt, ask your presenter if he/she will be sharing resources.

Why are some workshops ineligible for CEUs?

Each workshop is reviewed for CEU consideration using the rigorous procedures established by the Idaho Bureau of Occupational Licenses (IBOL) for social work, counseling, or occupational therapy licensure. Workshops that do not meet that standard still bear educational Contact Hours, but they will not apply towards this particular CEU classification. Participants may elect to submit to their specific licensing board the Workshop Certificate received at the end of a training session, along with available training materials from the workshop. 

What is the refund policy?

No refunds.

Is my registration/ticket transferable?

Yes. Please contact us at EarlyYearsAdmin to request a registration transfer.

Are meals included in my registration?

Yes. Breakfast and lunch is included both days. Please note any dietary restrictions when you register.

How do I contact the organizer with any questions?

Please contact us at EarlyYearsAdmin for assistance.
