As we build quality programs, we're constantly challenged to improve time-honored routines, habits, and preschool traditions.  Innovation begins when we shape the tried and true with a twist of the new. As we adapt and grow, we advance our programs and keep them cutting edge.  With five tracks of training for your teachers and managers, you'll find topics that mix the best of tradition with current research and best practices to help you keep your program fresh and original.  

 
Four Tracks with 10 different workshops. . .new, and expereinced teachers and center managers will all find new twists to build innovation in 2013.
 
Featured Workshop:

 

 Balancing Demands: Tips for Keeping your Children and Yourself Stress-Proof in a Changing World.

 

Shaping , adapting, and growing create innovation and improvement. But the change they create often brings with it tension, conflict, and anxiety. Learn the warning signs of stress in yourself, and the children in your classroom. Learn to recognize the difference between good tension that produces growth, and toxic tension that creates stress and destroys growth. You'll come away with techniques for quickly untwisting the situations that cause conflict, and with new steps to create healthy habits during changing times.
