Understanding Temperaments

8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
A child's temperament influences his or her style of interaction, but also, the way that he or she understands and experiences the world and the people in it. This course will assist you in understanding the traits of the various temperaments and how adjustments can be made in your approach or environment when working with these various temperaments.

Notice, Wonder, Explore...Science with Children
12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
So just what is 'science'? How can this broad topic be encompassed in one complete definition? Take this course to gain basic understanding of science in early childhood, the role of the teacher in supporting young children's scientific inquiry, and creating an environment that supports science within the early childhood program.
