Learning Methods that Work…For You and the Children
Presenter: Jodi York, Manager, Mission Health Child Development Center
High quality early childhood programs utilize research-based learning methods that encourage critical thinking, creativity, problem-solving, communication and collaboration to help develop the whole child. Early childhood and preschool years are a time for children to fall in love with education. With the right program, children can grow and learn in ways that best suit their unique mind. Young children learn through meaningful hands-on experiences and a learning environment that encourages them to explore and discover. This training will explore the main preschool approaches and assist you with determining which methods work best for your teaching philosophy and tactics. Develop a program that meshes your teaching style with the children’s desire to learn and explore.
