Our Little Neighbors:  Building a Better World Together (Sesame Street in Communities) @ Virtual Workshop | Kansas City | Missouri | United States

In difficult or stressful circumstances, early childhood providers and caregivers play a vital role in modeling for young children how to manage big feelings and work through challenges.  Early childhood professionals from the Kansas City area will present resources that can be used in the home or the classroom in the midst of the pandemic and beyond.  Little Neighbors:  Building a Better World Together virtual workshop on October 3, 2020, will offer strategies for parenting and encourage all of us to face the inevitable changes ahead with confidence and kindness.

The care and support of early childhood providers can make a huge difference in the life of a young child.

Virtual Workshop: Helping Parents and Teachers in Transitioning Children Back to School @ Virtual Workshop

Our nation is divided in many ways on whether or not children should return to school in these difficult times of COVID-19.  There are many fears and anxieties about the health risks.  Others fear child achievement will suffer if children stay home any longer.  Either way, decisions have been made to reopen schools, and we all must prepare.  

This session will share family engagement strategies and activities that can help with the safety of children, schools, and educators.  Additionally, family literacy will be explained to show how it can be intertwined with family engagement for positive outcomes, and how parents and teachers can build effective partnerships for success to ensure the safety of children, educators, schools, and communities. 

This will be a virtual workshop and Registration is required.

You will receive a conformation email that will say “invoice to follow” just ignore.  This workshop is free.
