Cultivating Farm to Early Childhood Sylvia Kennedy-Godin

Special Topics:
Sponsor: Shelburne Farms
Instructor: Jed Norris & Cynthia Greene

Hey early childhood educators! Come explore Farm to Early Childhood Care & Education (FTECE) programming. This workshop is an opportunity for Family Child Care, Head Start, Center-Based and Public Pre-K educators to explore and expand their personal and professional knowledge and experience related to Farm to Early Childhood programming while building and strengthening community connections. This interactive workshop will immerse participants in hands-on child centered learning experiences like pickling, taste testing and wool felting along with practical discussions for community networking with local farmers and food system experts to build their knowledge of and teaching practices in FTEC programming. Investigate and 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. Play with us inside and outside to discover the learning possibilities of Farm to Early Care & Education.
