1 - 3 Inquiring Minds Want to Know: Science for Young Children

Session Descriptions:

RELAX: Alternatives to Anger: RELAX for parents and caregivers looks at anger and strong emotion in infants, toddlers and preschoolers. Participants gain a better understanding of the developmental stages in children’s self-control. They learn how they can assist children at each stage by using RELAX concepts in daily interactions.

Inquiring Minds Want to Know: Science for Young Children: 
For young children, the scientific process begins with observing, predicting, experimenting and interpreting. These explorations lay the foundation for future understanding of more complex science concepts. This program helps adults understand how science experiences promote child development, build self-confidence, stimulate curiosity and develop language skills. Participants in this workshop will walk away with hands-on activities that they can take and implement with the young children they work with.  

Accommodations for persons with disabilities may be requested by contacting Kylie Rymanowicz at 231-627-8836 by February 22 to make arrangements. Requests received after this date will be fulfilled when possible.
