Practical Ways to Promote Learning Through Active Play (April 2017) in English @ Wollaston Child Care
Apr 29 all-day

By moving more and sitting less, children are not only learning, they are learning how to live a healthful way.  When children participate in active play, they not only develop their large muscles, they are better able to learn in all domains.  Also, movement helps children develop confidence in their abilities.  By participating in fun physical activity early in life, children may develop a lifelong enjoyment of being physical active.  During this interactive training, participants will explore the benefits of including active play throughout the curriculum, discuss ways to support motor skill development, consider ways to create a safe and appropriate active learning environment, and share strategies that promote active learning both indoors and outdoors.  Participants will also discuss the MA Department of Early Education and Care regulation on physical activity required of licensed early childhood programs.

This training is 5 hours/.5 CEU credits. Core Competency: 5. Learning Environments and Curriculum.

Instructor: Michelle Campbell-Gaylord

Planning and Implementing Activities in a Mixed-Age Program (English) @ Stars
May 20 @ 9:30 am – 3:30 pm

Children grow and learn naturally in mixed-age groups. Younger children watch and learn from the “experts,” including important cognitive and social skills.  Older children can explore the same materials more deeply and gain self-confidence by teaching and interacting with younger children. However it can be challenging to balance safety, active learning, and the individual needs of each child.  Participants will explore what the research shows about multi-age groups in early childhood, and, through discussion and interactive activities, plan to meet the needs of a multi-age group of children.  This course includes topics on “diverse learners.”   This training is 5 hours/.5 CEU credits. Core Competency: 5. Learning Environments and Curriculum.
