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. 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.

6. Improving Communication Skills and Reducing Conflict in Your Life and Program Setting

Effective communication skills can be helpful in the workplace, at home, and any other aspect of your life! This training will offer a brief introduction to some of the common communication problems we may experience on a daily basis, and looks at how we can develop our skills in order to increase our assertiveness, and become better listeners and speakers. We will explore effective ways to reduce and resolve conflict, and apply these techniques using some typical early-childhood scenarios. Participants will discover how specific strategies may improve relationships with co-workers and with the families with which we work.
