PLEASE READ BEFORE PURCHASING TICKETS: The workshop is designed for participants to form a sense of community. This can only happen when attendees are open to sharing their experiences, reflections, and ideas. Many organizations provide professional development for early childhood educators. Suppose you are seeking professional development only to obtain a certificate for credit hours. In that case, this workshop may not be the right fit. Workshop attendees are asked to be active participants throughout the entire session. This involves having your camera on for at least part of the session, taking an active role in small group conversations, and being fully present during the entire session. Please note: Ticket purchases are non-refundable. A refund and/or credit is NOT given for missed workshops. All virtual workshops are taught in a live format in the Eastern Time Zone (EDT). They will not be recorded. Each person participating (viewing) the workshop needs to purchase a ticket. Prior to the workshop session you will receive information on how to request and obtain a professional development certificate.
