Event Details

As an early care and education professional, you deal with more than teaching. You work with the whole child, so issues and events outside of your program and within the child’s home will impact your work. Also, you and your program may be one of the few sources of support for some families, and they may turn to you with questions and needs beyond education and child care. 

Topics for Training:

* Talking with families about sensitive topics

* Concerns and considerations in cultural context

* Avoiding the "us" and "them" conversation

* Strength-based approach to leading and guiding conversations 

Who Should Participate:

This professional development session will benefit an array of audience members, including: teachers, child care providers, school district teachers and administrators, Head Start staff, directors, managers, social workers, and; members of the early care and education community; T/TA managers and providers; federal and Regional Office staff; State Collaboration Offices.

How to Register:

Follow the instructions above to complete registration.  For additional information contact info@teachingexcellencecenter.com

The Teaching Excellence Center

People working with young children need opportunities to develop skills, acquire new knowledge, and achieve practical levels of interacting and communicating with young children and their families.

They also need to maintain skills and keep them up to date with current knowledge. Our professional development opportunities for early childhood professionals are designed to engage the wide range of people who work and join the early childhood workforce.


Developing Teachers: Knowledge. Skills. Ability. Attitude.
