Start with the Arts for CENTER based providers Benjamin Rackliffe

Special Topics:
Sponsor: Inclusive Arts Vermont
Instructor: Inclusive Arts Vermont's Teaching Artists

Start with the Arts is an inclusive, intensive, mentoring program for childcare providers caring for children preschool age and younger. Quality children’s books are extended with rich, arts based experiences, something from every artistic genre; music, dance, drama and visual arts, to help children and providers explore and find their best expressive means. Our teaching artists mentor and support providers, and providers practice creating and documenting their own Start with the Arts lessons, with the goal being that at the end of the program, the providers themselves will have the inspiration and confidence to continue the use of the model on their own. Our center program meets twice a week for 12 weeks, with 5 of these meetings being reflection meetings, scheduled without children. Up to two providers per classroom can participate together and split the pd hours.
