You are the container, the holding place, for the fears and anxieties, the joys and the wonderings of each child in your classroom. Your containers may well feel quite full, especially as you may be experiencing your own worries and fears. You are the essential element in your classroom and the relationships you build with each child and family are the crucial factor for nurturing growth, resilience and hope. As you prepare your classroom (and yourself!) for children’s return, what should you expect? We will consider the unique and specific impacts of the coronavirus pandemic, especially its impact in vulnerable populations and those impacted by systemic disparities and racial injustice. In the first part, we focus on you—strategies for strengthening your resilience, hope, confidence and positive focus. In the second part we focus on the children—answers to their questions, responses to changes in behaviors and to strong or worrisome feelings. Time away from classroom life and the re-entry to possibly changed classrooms impacts young children’s development and behavior. We will consider key curriculum practices that will support a healthy, safe and even joy-filled refocus, refresh and restart.

The online presentation via zoom will be in two parts and you may register for either or both.
Part 1: August 12
Part 2: August 13
from 1:00 - 2:00 PM

This training is made possible through the Early Years Count Education Initiative of the Community Foundation of St. Joseph County, Inc.
