Session 1: Quality Interactions with Infants and Toddlers

Session 2: Loose Parts
Children of all ages can spend hours playing with simple materials like sand, water, boxes, shells, or rocks. These objects ignite their imaginations and stimulate their creativity. Loose parts possess infinite possibilities for the child, with multiple outcomes. A loose parts rich environment provides children with numerous opportunities to discover new ways of thinking and new ways of processing knowledge learned by investigating, manipulating, exploring and playing with the materials.
Presenter: Wendy Dixon
Session 3: Building Blocks of Positive Child Behavior
In “Building Blocks of Positive Child Behavior” we will explore how the characteristics of preschoolers, the arrangement of the environment, and the expectations of early childhood programs influence children’s behavior. We will also evaluate a variety of strategies and problem solve several challenging scenarios.
