The early years of life form the foundation for lifelong learning. It is important that
educators understand how children learn in order to support their self concept and
development. This 2- hour training guides participants in the design and use of
developmentally appropriate curriculum and activities for children under two. Topics
will include infant and toddler development, understanding temperament and how it
impacts curriculum planning, and activities that support development.
Presented By Kate Banks
How do you plan your curriculum ahead of time and still follow the children’s
lead? What role does project based learning play? What about children’s
questions? Learn what emergent curriculum means, how it came about, the
benefits to this type of learning and hands-on practical ways to plan for it and
implement it each day. Learn how to use this type of learning to engage both
your children and their families, while changing the energy of the classroom
into an exciting place to be every day. You will come away with specific
strategies and ideas to begin this and to grow at your own pace. This is focused
