As leaders in the early childhood education field, you are the foundation of the care and education we provide to children in our community. MHVLD is all about helping you bring out the best of your gifts and talents to continue to build a strong foundation. Come be renewed in the community of other leaders from our area, sharing the desire for positive, fulfilling environments for our children, our families, our teachers and ourselves.
