Event description

Description

Understanding both the biology of adversity and the science of early learning is essential for building a strong foundation for reducing disparities in educational achievement. The benefits of evidence-based curricula in the early childhood years cannot be fully achieved without effective strategies for preventing the consequences of toxic stress.

Join us at this 1.5 hour Smart Start video session featuring Dr. Jack Shonkoff from the Center for the Developing Child at Harvard University as he speaks at Harvard Graduate School of Education's Askwith Forum, a series of public lectures featuring a wide range of topics, including early childhood, civic engagement, and education for human rights among others.

Professionals and Providers serving young children and their families - wake up to a Smart Start! The 0-to-5 Smart Start features learning opportunities to support and expand knowledge base to increase capacity of those providing services to young children and their families. A light breakfast is provided - come learn, have breakfast and network! 30 spots are available for each 0-to-5 Smart Start. Register early to hold a spot.
