About the trainings for the day!
Becoming a Brain Building Hero: The early years, especially the first three years of life, are very important for building brains. Infant and toddler brain development is influenced by many factors, including relationships, experiences and environment. This training will address the significant role you play in building young children's brains as well as provide you with some fun "brain-building" activities that help nurture learning and development.
Creating Beautiful Spaces: This training will focus on the science behind creating aesthetically pleasing spaces for young children. Research shows that children are sensitive to their surroundings and that design elements such as colors, textures, sounds, lightning and displays can affect moods, behaviors, learning and social interactions. The goal of this trainng is to use research to increase your knowledge of design elements and offer inspiration for creating beautiful spaces.
