A successful educator engages children in many exciting activities and experiences to help keep them focused and motivated. Inevitably, we encounter children with disruptive behavior that puts a damper on the smooth running of a classroom or program. This training will help you learn skills to minimize the disruption and improve the overall atmosphere of your classroom or program. We will learn about helping children to develop self-regulation, developing effective classroom rules, behavior management strategies, teaching social problem solving skills for a group or individual children, and responding to difficult behavior and physical aggression.

5. Leadership for the Early Childhood Educator


Many of us come to a leadership role without having any formal training. Come join us to explore how we can use our skills to be great leaders. Whether you are supervising interns or assistant teachers, leading a group of children or have goals to become a Lead Teacher, Director or an early childhood advocate state-wide, we will discover what leadership means. We'll talk about how to communicate with peers who you now need to supervise and relationships with parents in your new leadership role. We will use self reflection as a tool to investigate what skills we need, what we already have and how to fine tune these into leadership skills.

6. Niños bajo estrés


Investigadores de la Universidad de Michigan identificaron que el estrés en los niños se ubica entre los cinco principales problemas de salud infantil (C.S. Mott Children's Hospital, 2010). Un cierto tipo de estrés es normal y, de hecho, saludable, ya que nos da oportunidades de crecimiento, como el miedo a la oscuridad y la búsqueda de estrategias para manejar ese miedo. El estrés en moderación apoya el proceso de aprendizaje, ya que puede ser un motivador y aumenta la productividad. Sin embargo, cuando el estrés causa desequilibrio en la vida de un niño, puede tener consecuencias negativas para toda la vida. Los niños reaccionan de muchas maneras diferentes al estrés. En este curso, identificaremos algunas de las causas del estrés extremo en los niños, como el dolor, la enfermedad, la pobreza, el abuso, violencia y otros traumas. Durante este curso, los participantes aprenderán más sobre niños bajo estrés y estrategias para ayudar a los niños pequeños a enfrentar el estrés crónico. Resultado del curso: El resultado del curso es que los educadores aumenten su conocimiento de las causas del estrés infantil, la manifestación del estrés infantil en los entornos de aprendizaje y aprender estrategias para ayudar a los niños bajo estrés que están bajo su cuidado.

7. ¿Somos tan diferentes? Promoviendo diversidad en el entorno educativo


La creciente heterogeneidad de las sociedades en general y del ambiente educativo en particular, puede ofrecer a los ninos de programas de educacion infantil oportunidades positivas para la exploración y la apreciación hacia la diversidad. Las personas que ven a los demás como individuos en lugar de ponerles etiquetas de acuerdo al grupo social o etnico al cual pertenecen, son personas que muestran más tolerancia y respeto por los otros. A través de esta capacitación exploraremos diferentes suposiciones culturales que guían nuestro esfuerzo de promover el respeto hacia la diversidad, Al finalizar este curso los participantes identificaran e integrarán estrategias en sus programas que promuevan la tolerancia y el respeto por todos los miembros en los entornos educativos. Esta capacitación cubre información alineada con el QRIS bajo la categoría de Currículo y aprendizaje.
