Celebrating Your Journey - Developmentally Appropriate Holidays
“What are you doing for Valentine’s Day? Halloween? Christmas?” As early learning professionals, these are questions families will ask. Sometimes, due to our own excitement or from the pressure of parents, we plan experiences for children that in the end are not very meaningful to them at all or convey a message not intended. In this session we will explore the principles of developmentally appropriate practices and consider ways we can apply them to the celebration of children and families.
