Cultivating Farm to Early Childhood Sylvia Kennedy-Godin

Special Topics:
Sponsor: Shelburne Farms
Instructor: Jed Norris, Cythia Greene. Abbie Nelson

Cultivating Farm to Early Childhood (FTEC) is an opportunity for you - Family Child Care, Head Start, Center-Based and Public Pre-K educators - to explore and expand your personal and professional experience related to agriculture and nutrition programming while building and strengthening community connections. You’ll immerse yourself in hands-on, child-centered learning experiences like pickling, taste testing, and wool felting! We’ll align activities with practical discussions for community networking with local farmers and food system experts to build your FTEC knowledge. Learn how FTEC concepts help meet multiple standards across licensing, CACFP, VELS and STARS by promoting children’s learning in social emotional well-being, healthy eating habits, family engagement and community building. These training hours count for both BFIS and CACFP training hours.
