¿Está interesado en comenzar un negocio de calidad de cuidado de niños en la casa? ¡Entonces esta clase es para usted! Se revisará, en forma general, todos los aspectos envueltos en operar un negocio familiar de cuidado de niños, incluyendo entrevista con los padres, mercadeando sus servicios, manteniendo archivos e impuestos, y mucho más.

Cuando comienza un negocio de cuidado infantil, encontrará que necesita formas. Muchas formas. Desde horarios hasta contratos, desde acuerdos de transporte hasta “llegar a conocerte”, y muchas más. No se preocupe. Hemos reunido todos las formas que se necesitan y los hemos colocado en una memoria USB que puede comprar; y todas las formas son editables. Información sobre la compra de un “flash drive” se compartirá en el entrenamiento.

Broadening Your Lens…Embracing Cultural and Diversity in the Learning Environment Training Series @ Online
Dec 2 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Presenters: YWCA Quality Team – Casey Craft-Cortes, Whitney Bieber, & Jennifer Robertson

As early childhood educators it is our responsibility to consistently support warm, caring, and culturally responsive relationships. If our learning environments do not reflect and validate these 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, social identity, promoting diversity in the learning environment, and culturally responsive relationships with families.

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

Targeted Audience: All Early Childhood & Youth Professionals
Level of Learning: Introductory

Lenguaje, Lectura y Escritura para los Estudiantes más Pequeños @ Online
Dec 3 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Presenter: Susan Stewart, YWCA Community Engagement Specialist

La lectura no es un conjunto de habilidades aisladas que los niños aprenden cuando van a la escuela. Aprender a leer es un proceso fluido que comienza al nacer. Las habilidades tempranas de lenguaje y alfabetización se aprenden mejor a través de los momentos cotidianos con los niños. En esta sesión, los participantes:

  • aprenderán sobre el desarrollo cerebral y cómo se relaciona con el lenguaje y las habilidades de alfabetización en bebés y niños pequeños
  • participar en actividades de lenguaje y alfabetización
  • obtener nuevas actividades que puedan implementar en sus programas
