    Workshop Description:  Children in childcare can often have differing family dynamics    (divorced, separated, parents living apart, grandparent/relative care and multiple drop   off/pick up adults…) that make communication among their adult care-givers, and between the child care and families, challenging for all parties involved, which can greatly impact the  child in common.  

    Co-Parenting is ideal when it works, but what do families do when they just can't get along?  How do you support families without getting caught in the middle, or worse, add fuel to the flames.  Join us for a discussion about the differences between co-parenting and parallel parenting; with tips and tricks for your professional toolbox so you can help families keep the children in the center of the picture.

                Core Knowledge Area: "Building Family & Community Relationships"

                Professional Development Certificates for 2 hours will be awarded.

     Workshop Description:  Life Skills all involve what researchers call “executive functions of the brain”—functions that weave together social, emotional and intellectual capacities, enabling us to use what we know in pursuit of our goals.  Typically, learning and teaching have focused on the  content that children need to learn, but children need both content and Life Skills. Evidence-based research shows how these Life Skills help children thrive now and in the future.                     2017 NH Early Learning Standards: Building executive function is crucial for learning and development.                           Professional Development Certificates for 16 hours will be awarded                                             Core Knowledge Areas: 1.Developing as a Professional       2. Teaching & Learning  3. Promoting Child Growth & Development

    Identify your own cultural attitudes and understand how these impact your daily interactions.

    Workshop Description:  This workshop will help early childhood administrators and providers  explore the concepts of diversity and culture.  We know that strong positive relationships  with children and their families greatly impacts social, emotional and academic  success.  Participants will explore their own diversity and culture, and understand the importance of cultural competence in early childhood education.   At the end of this session,  you should be able to: define “diversity” and “culture” and explain the similarities and differences between these two concepts, and how they relate to early childhood education; identify your own   cultural attitudes and understand how these impact your daily interactions; and identify behaviors that indicate a lack of cultural competence and those that indicate skill in cultural competence.        Core Knowledge Area: "Building Family & Community Relationships"

    Professional Development Certificates for 2 hours will be awarded.
