  • Creating Neural Pathways for Literacy

    $25.00

    Creating Neural Pathways

    for Literacy

    2.5 hours

    Note: This class is still pending approval in North Carolina.

    Reading is not a natural process, and some children struggle more than others. The field of neuroscience has used brain imaging to help us understand what happens as children learn to read, and this information can help teachers better prepare children for later reading success. In this class, we will explore how to activate the necessary region of the brain that is required for reading and review the types of practices that are beneficial to children. Specifically, you’ll explore how the neural pathways for reading are constructed, the role of phonics and handwriting in reading instruction, why neuroscience supports phonics over whole language, the role of vocabulary in reading, and practical strategies for the preschool classroom that support these research findings.

    Creating Your Preschool Literacy Curriculum

    Creating Your Preschool Science Curriculum

    3.0 hours

    Note: This class is still pending approval in North Carolina.

    Science exploration comes naturally to children. Yet many of the science activities that are available online and even in stores are actually not appropriate for preschoolers. This workshop is designed to give you a background in the types of science experiences that preschoolers should have access to in an early care program. You will explore the specific factors that determine whether an activity is appropriate for preschoolers. You will learn about setting up a science area and the 3 areas of science curriculum that should be part of every early childhood classroom: physical science, life science, and earth and space science.

  • Creative Arts for Infants and Toddlers

    $20.00

    Creative Arts Experiences

    For Infants and Toddlers

    2.0 hours

    Note: This class is still pending approval in North Carolina.

    Infants and toddlers engage their creativity and curiosity in many different ways in an attempt to better understand the world around them and to find a way to express their own feelings. For children who may not yet have the ability to communicate verbally, creative experiences can be the most effective way for them to express what they are feeling. Opportunities for developing creativity are provided to infants and toddlers as sensory experiences or creative arts. In this course, we will explore creativity for young children, specifically including the areas of art, music, and movement for infants and toddlers. These activities not only enhance children’s creativity, but they can also boost children’s ability to analyze, problem solve, and practice fine motor skills….along with the myriad of cognitive skills that are enhanced.

Learn about what a single story is, how to avoid it, and how to avoid a tourist-y approach to diversity. Only by understanding all of these concepts can we truly provide an equitable experience for all children.

  • Inclusive Classrooms for Infants and Toddlers

    $20.00

    Creating a Culturally Inclusive

    Infant and Toddler Classroom

    2.0 hours

    Note: This class is still pending approval in North Carolina.

    Working with young children – or on behalf of them – has increasingly meant taking into account the effect of caretakers and other family members on the development of the child. Adding families to the mix often calls us to step out of ourselves – our ways of thinking, our ways of doing – to better understand the people we serve. It has become clearer and clearer that when families interact with their children, they bring more to this interaction than their own personal way of doing things.  They bring the weight of their cultural beliefs, values, and behaviors. Building strong relationships with families requires that early care professionals recognize and understand their own beliefs, feelings, assumptions, and reactions – and how they can influence their interactions with families. This course will explore all of these areas and provide strategies for building inclusive partnerships with families.

  • Math & Science for Infants and Toddlers

    $25.00

    Math & Science for Infants and Toddlers

    2.5 hours

    Infants and toddlers naturally engage in both math and science activities. Our job, as their caregivers, is to enhance the environment so that opportunities for math and science play abound! While we can plan for these activities, much of math and science for this age group revolves our communication to children, so we’ll spend some time exploring this concept as well as activities. We’ll begin by looking at some foundations for cognitive development and math/science development, and then we will get into specific math and science ideas.
