Early Childhood Education Series: Part 1 - Teaching the Young Child

Early educators know that their role in a child's life helps build a firm foundation upon which all other learning experiences will grow. Brain research confirms the importance of learning in these early years. How do you as an early educator meet the demands of each child in your classroom? How do you ensure they are receiving a quality education? Whether you’re a new or experienced early educator, this workshop will bring creative ideas that can be immediately applied in your classroom. Enjoy instruction tailored directly to your students’ developmental level. And, have fun!

Earn 6 professional development hours in this active, practical, hands-on workshop for directors, teachers, and assistants of children birth through preschool 5-year-olds.

Topics Include:

  • Understanding Child Development & Learning

  • Planning Appropriate Play Activities
