*** UPDATE ***
TOMORROW'S WEBINAR IS POSTPONED

During this time of rapid change and uncertainty, we realize the increased burdens placed on those of you who work with children and their families. With this in mind, we have decided to postpone the webinar, Educating Families About Developmentally Appropriate Practices, that was scheduled for tomorrow, Tuesday, March 17, 2020.

We will reschedule this event once demands on your time and resources have normalized.

For those of you who have time off due to program closures, you may be interested in exploring our webinar archives (http://bit.ly/2TWUCRv) with dozens of recorded webinars covering a variety of early childhood education topics.

Thank you for all you do for the early childhood community!

Sincerely,
Kamna Seth
Senior Director, ECE Initiatives

Therefore, it is of high-priority that early childhood educators meet the needs of children coming from differing cultural backgrounds. The...

As research indicates children learn at a rapid pace in their early years, it is crucial to offer a productive learning environment. A well-organized classroom that includes developmentally appropriate space, materials, activities, expectations, and interactions encourages young children with a developed set of skills to negotiate the tools provided and get along with their peers. This webinar will offer some key success strategies and guidance methods to create a secure and positive classroom environment to enhance the learning experience.
