Thursday, October 25, 2018, 5pm-7:30pm at The Church of the Holy Comforter, Kenilworth. The dinner is $40 per person, and most schools pay for their staff.
In an incredibly short period of time, tablets and smartphones have transformed childhood and family life. But the most important childhood experiences take place offline, including self-directed creative play, interactions with peers, family members and other caring adults, and exploration of the natural world. Many early childhood professionals see first-hand how excessive screen time is displacing these essential experiences, but don’t know how to talk to families about media use without making parents feel defensive or guilty. CCFC’s Josh Golin will describe how professionals who work with young children can get parents and communities excited about putting down devices and ensuring that young children have plenty of time for the offline experiences they really need to thrive.
*Gateway credit and CPDUs will be offered to teachers at this event
