Session Descriptions:

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 16hands-on activities that they can take and implement with the young children they work with.  

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.

More than 1, 2, 3: Math and Early Childhood: Early experiences with mathematical concepts lay the foundation for later development of formal math instruction. However, learning math in early childhood doesn’t mean including worksheets and calculators in the classroom! Learn more about early childhood mathematical concepts and strategies to support children’s development of foundational math skills while having fun!
