Embracing Culture & Diversity into the Learning Environment Series @ Online
Dec 2 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Presenter: Casey Craft-Cortez, YWCA Infant Toddler Specialist & ITN Trainer, Whitney Bieber, YWCA Quality Specialist & ITN Trainer & Jennifer Robertson, YWCA Quality Specialist

As early childhood educators it is our responsibility to support consistently warm, caring, and culturally responsive relationships. If our learning environments do not reflect and validate the families and their cultural identities, children may feel invisible, unimportant and ashamed of who they are. During the Broadening your Lens series we will explore defining culture, your social identity, promoting diversity in the learning environment, and culturally responsive relationships with families. Participants REQUIRED to  attend ALL 4 sessions to receive certificate.

Participants that complete entire training series will receive a FREE implementation kit with materials to help attendees begin to incorporate culture and diversity in their environments.

Presenter: Steve Spangler, Motivational Education Speaker

Early childhood educators know that getting children excited about science is only part of the challenge. Today’s young learners need more than excitement and motivation – they need opportunities to actually DO more science on a daily basis.

Throughout the presentation, Steve explores a variety of techniques and presentation ideas for connecting science with popular children’s literature.  Explore a number of great science ideas that encourage children to “play with a purpose.”  Learn how to use elements of the story line to teach and reinforce fundamental building blocks of your science curriculum. You will uncover the secrets of developing your own unique presentation style that makes young learner want to learn more.

**Each registered participant will receive a STEM kit valued at $65 shipped directly to them to reference/use during the training.
