During this workshop, we will be talking about all things science, as it relates to the Foundations: physical science, earth and space, life science, engineering, and scientific inquiry. Professionals will know how to use knowledge of science content, concepts and learning trajectories to design the curriculum and learning environments.

Many problem behaviors actually stem from the child's inability to regulate his or her emotions. By working to teach them these skills at a young age, children are able to verbalize how they are feeling and then problem solve ways to deal with those feelings. When children know how to manage their feeling through instruction and practice when they are calm, they are able to implement those strategies when they really need them and essentially change the climate of the classroom one child at a time.

Title: Taking on Turnover, Part I & II
Date: 03/01/2018 Time: 06:30 PM-09:00 PM
Description: Turnover is demoralizing! It can turn a caregiver’s, teacher’s, or director’s job into a question of day-to-day survival rather than as a way of working toward high-quality care for children and families. If one or two key staff members depart, others may also choose to leave, until very quickly, those who remain find that the program is moving farther away from a vision of good child care, rather than closer to it. If any of these feelings sounds familiar this workshop is for you! While there is no magic formula to stem turnover, we will present a host of ideas to help you make your child care program a place where you and your co-workers can not only stay but continue to grow on the job. In Taking on Turnover, Part I we will discuss the problem of turnover including defining turnover and its impact on children, families, and staff. We will also explore why staff leave, the process of change, and assessing and managing the effects of turnover in your program. In Taking on Turnover, Part II, we will make an action plan to reduce turnover in your program. We will explore your program’s work environment, recruitment and hiring, improving compensation, and improving your program’s substitute policies. **Must attend Part I to attend Part II.
