1. Numeracy Birth to Age Five


Research supports the notion that young children have an intuitive sense of informal mathematics. As an early childhood educator, you play an important role in bridging children's informal understanding of mathematics with daily experiences offered through your program's learning environment. This training takes a chronological view of mathematics development in children, beginning at birth and going through Kindergarten. It will offer specific teaching suggestions for each age group based on the Early Learning Guidelines for Infants and Toddlers, the Guidelines for Preschool Learning Experiences, and the Massachusetts Curriculum Framework for Mathematics.

2. Open Ended Art


Join us for a fun and interactive training that explains the benefits of focusing on the process rather than the product in art. We will have a chance to experience some art and discuss how what we learned applies to our programs. Group discussions will allow participants to hear about other’s art experiences with children. Pictures and videos will highlight a variety of art projects. Participants will leave feeling a renewed sense of inspiration about offering open ended art to the children in your program!

3. Educación CTIM (STEM) en Programas de Educación Temprana


Los niños utilizan las habilidades matemáticas y científicas desde el nacimiento para interpretar y reaccionar ante su mundo. Estudios muestran que los cerebros del bebé funcionan como un programa estadístico que cambia a través de los sonidos que oyen y que determinan cómo estos van juntos en su lengua materna. En este curso, los participantes descubrirán las capacidades CTIM de los niños pequeños y explorarán estrategias diseñadas para integrar el contenido CTIM en las experiencias de aprendizaje del programa.
Resultados del curso: Los participantes integrarán CTIM (ciencia, tecnológica, ingeniería y matemáticas) en su currículo, proporcionando actividades apropiadas para el desarrollo que respondan a las necesidades e interés de los niños y promuevan el desarrollo de habilidades.

4. When Kids Seem Different: Learn the Signs


In the first few years, a child's brain is rapidly developing new connections that enable the skills called developmental milestones. “Mastery of each new milestone be it emotional, physical, or cognitive leads to the next one. If a particular skill doesn't develop properly, that makes the next one more difficult to master.” Dr. Gardner. This training will help you identify the developmental milestones and potential areas of concern for the children in your care in order to help preempt the negative outcomes that could result. Learn about the importance of screening young children and what to expect from the Early Intervention and Special Education systems. All areas of development will be discussed, including social emotional, cognitive, physical skills, and speech and language.
