Be Safe, Be Kind, Be Gentle: Nature-based Play and Learning through the Seasons – SUMMER

This series will engage early childhood professionals in the best practices for authentic play in nature for children and the learning that it fosters. We’ll explore the adult role in this learning, discuss risk and benefit, describe some approaches to getting all students ready to be outside learning together, identify how to document and extend the learning, and discover how the language and experiences of outdoor play can help us build more compassionate children and peaceful communities. We’ll do this while spending time outside looking for signs of the seasons and learning how to involve young children in “doing science” – observations, questions, sharing discoveries. Summer investigations outside are full of bugs and flowers and dirt. Learning Objectives: Learn how nature-based play outdoors is critical for children’s overall development; Learn best practices for authentic play in nature; Explore the adult role in outdoor learning environments and identify how to document and extend outdoor learning.

YPQI: Homework Help

Homework Help is an essential component of many youth programs, but too often it’s a time for youth to work quietly while the adults supervise. This interactive workshop introduces participants to the relationship ABC’s (Ask and Listen, Be involved, and Connect) as well as the concept of “focus.” These elements help participants reconsider Homework Help as another opportunity to build relationships and nurture positive growth, beyond getting the work done.

Abusive Head Trauma Prevention and Infant Safe Sleep 101

Parent Child Centers and Childcare Providers are a key component in prevention and are a valuable resource and support for parents. PCAVT offer free trainings that will help you identify parents and caregivers who may be at risk for shaking a child, and strategies you may pass on that might help to save a child's life. Many of you may know Shaken Baby Syndrome is the term used to describe the group of injuries an infant or small child receives after a violent shaking. Did you know that sadly, this is the most lethal type of child abuse that 25% of these infants and young children that are shaken die, and 50% will suffer lifelong disabilities, and only 25% will lead normal and healthy lives? Fortunately, this is the most preventable form of child abuse. It is our goal to ensure that every Vermonter knows to NEVER, NEVER, NEVER SHAKE A BABY. Trainings include brain Jell-O molds, dolls and a powerful video.

Early MTSS: Tier 2, Part 1: Intentional Teaching of Social-Emotional Skills

This session will focus on the developmental skills of social-emotional development in early childhood and how to support and teach skills to children within the classroom. We will spend time on teaching emotional literacy as a foundational skill for development of these prosocial skills and end with some planning for implementation in the classroom and/or with individual children. Staff should bring needed materials with them to begin writing a whole class or individualized teaching plan, social story, or observation/communication tool at the end of the session. In follow-up sessions at individual programs we will build on Tier 2 content and implementation and offer time for reflection and problem-solving. These will be offered at times that are convenient for PreK programs.
