SATURDAY SESSIONS EDUCATION FOR A CIVIL SOCIETY – PART 1

MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR MATERIALS

Author, educator, and child guidance specialist Dan Gartrell, has just published his recent work on how appropriate guidance teaches young children the life skills they need to live a more civil life. He has identified five specific skills that when combined together provide a strong foundation to build upon. The first skill is finding acceptance as a member of the group. Tonia Thornton and Pat Beck will introduce the work of Gartrell and share the importance of the first skill and how to build it into your program.

It is easy to get sucked into program materials that tout themselves as “educational” and encourage learning. In this training we will look at what materials really are best for the children in your care. In this training Katie Howell and Kass Nethercott will provide you with hands on materials to take with you. We will look at getting the most out of the materials that you already have or everyday household or center objects. You will leave this training thinking about every-day objects in a brand new way!

EDUCATION FOR A CIVIL SOCIETY – PART 2

Tonia Thornton and Kass Nethercott will continue the series on the work of Dan Gartrell by introducing the next two life skills. It is easy to see how expressing strong emotions in non-hurting ways and solving problems creatively-independently and in cooperation with others are part of the education needed to live in a civil society. This session will provide you with ways to help children achieve these skills.

NATURE OR NURTURE? UNDERSTANDING TEMPERAMENT

This full-day session provides child care professionals with an introduction to the concept of temperament and the five key temperament traits. It also examines the interaction between a child’s and a provider’s temperament which is often called the “Goodness of Fit”. In this session you will become aware of how your own temperament, reactions to others’ temperament, and the child care environment can interact to support a child’s healthy development.

The last section in this series will help you guide children towards accepting unique human qualities in others as well as how to think intelligently and ethically. It may seem like these traits are for older children and adults. Katie Howell and Tonia Thornton will help you understand that laying a strong foundation in the early years is essential for later success.

DISTANCE LEARNING We now offer two (2) forms of on-line learning. Our traditional Distance Learning courses are formatted as e-mail correspondence classes. You begin the class on the listed start date then have 10 days to complete. You will correspond with the instructor via e-mail. These classes are for the student who needs the flexibility of doing coursework on their own schedule. Our new E-TRAIN platform is webinar based training. You attend the training just like you would a traditional workshop only you do it from the convenience of your work or home computer. Our E-Training is perfect for busy professionals who like the structure of a traditional classroom but need the convenience of being able to attend from work or home.

DISCIPLINE 101: WHAT REALLY MATTERS

Before focusing on discipline techniques, what we really need is a good knowledge base. We need to know what matters when it comes to discipline – and why. This is the course that will help you build a solid foundation for guiding children’s behavior. Fee: Start Date: Credit Hours: Instructor: OCFS Area: CBK Area: ELG Area: CDA Goal:

THE FINE ART OF SAYING “NO”

One of our jobs is to set appropriate limits for children’s behavior. And one of children’s jobs is to find out how reliable and strong those limits are. When this happens, adults need to know how to say “no” to children in ways that are appropriate and effective. There are different ways of saying “no” to different children in different circumstances. In this course, you’ll learn to reinforce limits without being either harsh or wishywashy.

YOUR ROLE AS A MANDATED REPORTER

When you work in a child care setting, you are mandated to report suspicions of child abuse and maltreatment, and you play an important part in the system to protect children. In this introductory course you will learn the basics of your responsibilities in this important role – how to recognize, document and report suspicions of child abuse and maltreatment. $16 Member $20 Non Member March 8 2 Kass Nethercott 6, 8, 9 2, 3, 5 1 1, 3, 4

Fee: Start Date: Credit Hours: Instructor: OCFS Area: CBK Area: ELG Area: CDA Goal:

Regulations and laws are often created or change based on new information, perspectives or specific events. This is true of our responsibilities and practices as mandated reporters for child abuse and maltreatment. In this course you will review current regulations and practices for mandated reporters and learn how specific events throughout history shaped our laws, regulations and practices. This course is for people who have already taken an introductory course in mandated reporting.

When you work in School Age Child Care, children come to your program after being in school all day. This creates special challenges that can seem overwhelming. This session will help you to address these challenges by considering the children’s social and emotional development first – and by using strategies that develop social and emotional skills.

Fee: Start Date: Credit Hours: Instructor: OCFS Area: CBK Area: ELG Area: CDA Goal:

When it comes to “doing the right thing” with young children in child care, it’s not just a matter of everyone doing their own thing. There is actually an understanding of what is best practice when caring for young children. It is called Developmentally Appropriate Practice. In this course, you will learn what that phrase means, how it applies to the work you do with young children and how putting it to work will help you offer a program that is right on target for children.

SOCK, BLOCKS AND BUTTON SNAKES

MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR MATERIALS

This make-and-take workshop provides all materials to make sock blocks and a snake button. Participants will learn that a toddler’s brain is a work in progress profoundly influenced by their environment, and what she is now exposed to—or not exposed to—will have lifelong impact. Children are born primed to learn and it’s up to you to provide the stimulation children need. Most important, since play is a vehicle of learning for children, engaging in this task should be fun.

It is easy to get sucked into program materials that tout themselves as “educational” and encourage learning.

EVENING SESSIONS TOP TEN TIPS FOR GUIDING TODDLER BEHAVIOR

This session is back by popular demand! Long before David Letterman started his Top Ten lists, we created this list based on a solid understanding of toddler development and behavior. Gretchen Kinnell will lead you in a humorous, but oh-so-true picture of toddler development and related behaviors. You’ll see why some of the behaviors that may seem so baffling to adults are the very behaviors that Mother Nature has put in place to help them make sense of their world. You’ll increase your understanding of toddlers, and learn to guide their behavior in ways that are fair to them and that save your sanity.

CHILDREN’S SEXUALITY: WHAT TO EXPECT

You asked for it, so here it is! Healthy sexual development begins at birth. Understanding typical sexual milestones is equally as important as knowing other milestones. Having the right information will help you, and the children you care for, feel more comfortable as the children pass through each stage of development. Join Pat Beck as we de-mystify this often uncomfortable subject and understand when you should be concerned about children’s sexual play.

THE WAY WE SEE THEM

Magda Gerber asked us to “look at babies with new eyes,” and consider what it means to treat a baby with respect. Her suggestion to treat a baby with the same respect we’d treat an “honored guest” is still not widely understood or practiced by most. Do you think all the labels we have pinned on young children, such as “brats” and “terrible twos” and “tyrannical threes” may have distorted our lens through which we view them? Please join Sue DeCarlo for a look into how we view children and the effect it has on them.

Quilting, Cross stitching, reading, family time with my husband and children Please describe a personal statement or philosophy on child care/early learning “What influences my thinking about teaching and learning of young children are four words: strength, character, courage, and diversity. In order for a child to grow, he or she must first have the strength to do so. Character is who a person is. If a child is taught strength and character early on, then this sets the stage for courage. A child gains courage when he or she is accepted for his or her strength and character. It is with diversity that our world flourishes. Children should not be looked at with limitations or exceptions, but with the ability to develop into people who can change the world.”

GET CONNECTED JOIN OUR COMMUNITY OF LEARNING Wouldn’t you love to be able to connect with other Registered and Licensed providers in your community and address specific concerns or challenges that you face while also having the opportunity to receive training that would meet OCFS training requirements? We are building a new “learning community” concept and looking to pilot this support outreach first to providers located in the 13205 zip code. We at Child Care Solutions believe in, and are committed to, “high quality childcare.” We believe that in order to have “high quality childcare,” we need to be working together to combine the most current OCFS day care regulations with up-to-date child development research and developmentally appropriate practices to ensure that children are receiving quality care in programs. Uniting as a child care community will also position providers to present themselves as a valuable resource to their community. If you are a provider in the 13205 zip code and are interested in participating in this exciting pilot program, please contact Tonia Thornton at 446-1220 x 347. We will be starting the pilot program in March of 2013.

The Child Development AssociateŽ (CDA) is the most widely recognized credential in early childhood education (ECE) and is a key stepping stone on the path of career advancement in ECE. The CDA credential is based on a core set of competency standards, which guide early child care professionals as they work toward becoming qualified teachers of young children. CDAs have knowledge of how to put the CDA Competency Standards into practice and understanding of why those standards help children move with success from one developmental stage to another. Put simply, CDAs know how to nurture the emotional, physical, intellectual, and social development of children. Earning the CDA Credential has many advantages, including exposure to the larger community of early childhood educators. Over 275,000 educators have received their CDA to date! Becoming a CDA is a big commitment, but one that creates confident practitioners with command of today’s best practices for teaching young children.
