Upcoming Center PD – Próximo DP del Center


Early Care and Education Leader Community of Practice (solo en inglés)
The goal of this community of practice is to create a supportive environment for leaders in early care and education to share ideas, problem-solve, and deepen their understanding of leadership. We will facilitate content based on the needs and interests of the group, but we are also hoping that each participant will bring their own questions, concerns, and contributions to the table.  Each cohort will meet once per month for approximately one and a half hours, for 5 sessions. More sessions may be added if there is interest to continue. PD hours will be granted for participation.

November 27th, December 18th, January 22nd, February 26th, and March 25th from 3:30pm – 5:00pm – Online
December 6th, January 10th, February 7th, March 6th, and April 3rd from 1:00pm – 2:30pm – In Person


Practical Approaches to Behavior for All Children: Diving Deeper into the Safe Place (solo en inglés)
This training focuses on how to successfully implement a Safe Place for all children. Conscious Discipline’s My 5 Steps breaks down the regulation process into concrete easy to follow steps. This training will explicitly teach how the adult supports a student through co-regulation and why the full five step cycle leads to healthy relationships and conflict resolution.

December 4th from 5:30pm – 7:30pm – Online
