Early Childhood Essentials: Lesson Planning in the Work You Already Do

6:30 PM to 7:30 PM
Add to Calendar 01/18/2018 06:30 PM 01/18/2018 07:30 PM America/New_York Early Childhood Essentials: Lesson Planning in the Work You Already Do

Pre-registration opens Nov. 1 and is required.  The purpose of this training is to help Early Childhood Professionals recognize the important work they do with children on a day to day basis. Curriculum and lesson planning can be complicated, intimidating and overwhelming and it does not have to be. We will look at how curriculum is already taking place and how to document information and plan for developmentally appropriate activities without being overwhelmed.

Each session offers one hour of professional development credit. Adults only please; child care is not provided. Sponsored by Great Start to Quality.
