Workshops for Educators and Professionals
: using the five early literacy practices - Read, Write, Talk, Sing, Play - as a basis for learning, teachers will walk away with fun, research-based strategies they can immediately implement in their classrooms.
Workshops for Parents and Caregivers
: these workshop are for caregivers and will cover early child development and information on all or some of the five Early Learning Activities that caregivers can do (and are likely already doing) that will help build their child’s brain - Read, Write, Talk, Sing, and Play. Some workshops may focus on one Early Learning Activity in particular.
Workshops for families with their Children
: These interactive sessions for children and their adults offer fun activities and whole body play for children of all abilities, birth to 6 years old, and their parents/caregivers – all designed to strengthen children’s early language, cognitive, and social development while encouraging interaction and engagement between the caregiver and child. Children and their adults need to be present.
