Do children feel loved? Most would answer, “Of course!” This workshop will look how different children give and receive love and care in five different ways. And because human behavior says that we nurture and love in the way we need it, not in the way others need it, adults have to adjust to how children accept love. Come find out how to make those adjustments!

Promoting Child Engagement
Understanding the importance of child engagement in the early years is critical to supporting children’s social-emotional development and learning. This training will provide strategies that support children and reduce barriers to engagement, including challenging behaviors. Classroom design, curricula, and teaching styles will be addressed to help participants understand their role in working with young children to promote interactions with the environment, adults, and most importantly, peers.

Moving Beyond Rewards, Punishments to Choice and Appropriate Consequences
Positive discipline starts with the parent or teacher. How do we look inward and start the change within ourselves? Children count on us to lead the way, stay out of power struggles, be kind and firm and follow through. Authoritative caregivers do exactly that! Come hang out with Megg Thompson and see how you can start small and end up with big results and happier children, families and classrooms!

Professionalism is a huge topic that can keep the EC field stagnant and drowning in its constant stereotypes. Taking an honest look at where we currently stand and how to climb the professionalism ladder is pertinent and necessary for teachers, children, families and the community! We will use NAEYC’s code of ethics as a stepping stone as well as my time as a teacher and consultant in the EC field!
