Playful Learning with Young Children (Juneau-Southeast Region)
This workshop is for teachers and caregivers who are interested in exploring how to make children's play the vehicle for the most important learning that young children engage in. Integrating dramatic play with art, literacy, math, science and social studies sounds like a tall order. But it works if adults are willing to carefully observe children's play. The teacher then builds on the children's interests, and uses her own experience and knowledge of what is possible and meaningful for the children. This approach to learning not only gives the play the attention and depth it deserves, but enriches the lives of the children and their caregivers. This training is geared for preschool and school age teachers or childcare providers.
Licensed childcare providers who attend this training are eligible to apply for a $500.00 Playful Learning quality initiative. For more information about quality initiatives contact Christa Womack at (907) 789-1235 or you can apply at the time of the workshop.
