Building Healthy Relationships with Effective Communication
April 12, 2018
Every day people communicate using words and actions during face-to-face exchanges and phone calls, as well as through emails, texts, and social networking. Regardless of the communication method, the way you communicate to families, colleagues and community members can have a huge impact on your program’s overall success. Effective communication is key to building productive relationships. That’s why it’s important for you to take time to reflect on how your communication skills (or lack thereof) may be affecting the quality of care you provide.

During this Webcast, you will learn how to use strong professional communication skills to create a welcoming atmosphere, resolve conflicts and communicate sensitive information. You will also gain knowledge of the ins and outs of using social networking as a way to communicate in the early childhood field, as well as tips on how to cultivate a stronger relationship with your licensor or registrar.

Educating for Sustainability
June 7, 2018
According to the Sustainable Schools Project, educating for sustainability is defined as “learning that links knowledge, inquiry, and action to help children build a healthy future for themselves, their communities, and the planet.” Sustainability, along with STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math)  programming, such as gardening, recycling and composting, provides children with effective, high-quality teaching and learning experiences that encourage the use of critical thinking while working towards a sustainable future.

Join us for this Webcast, where you will discover why there is a growing recognition for educating for sustainability in early childhood. You will also find out how you can use sustainability as a lens to envision your entire program from how decisions are made, to curriculum content, to configuring your play spaces and connecting with families.

Town Hall Meeting: Examining the Business Side of Child Care
October 25, 2018
Providing children in your care with a safe, healthy environment is your number one priority. You do this by offering nutritious menu choices, providing time and space for physical activity, and planning experiences that encourage exploration and discovery. You also do this by performing business responsibilities such as implementing the NYS Child Day Care Regulations, updating and enforcing contracts and policies, and maintaining accurate forms and records. It may not always seem apparent, but
many of the things you do on a regular basis help support your program as a business.

Join us for this Webcast, where an expert in the field of child care business will walk us through case studies
addressing situations similar to ones you may have experienced. Each scenario will be analyzed to see what could have been done differently to result in a more positive outcome for the program, children and  families.

Questions and concerns from the town hall meeting audience will be addressed, and you will be provided
with valuable information on how to fulfill the business maintenance responsibilities of your program.
