Please Water the Garden, Not My Toilet Seat!

Presented by: Carolyn Speikers
Have you ever been told that you should write a book based on the stories from the children during your day? Children have a unique perspective on life. When we look inside those innocent stories, we find that there are lessons to be learned. During this presentation I will share my own "top ten" list of great child care moments and what we can learn from them: from perseverance to professionalism!

I Wonder: Using Curiosity to Understand and Address Children's Behavior  (ID# 136962)

KCF: II.C: Promoting Social and Emotional Development 

Presented by: Tracy (Theresa) Schreifels


What if caregivers used their curiosity to resolve challenging behaviors? Learn how to use reflective thinking to understand how development, trauma, and attachment influence behaviors. Behavior is a form of communication that caregivers can learn to interpret when time is taken to process the meaning. Explore a toolbox of strategies for preventing and addressing behavior in infants, toddlers and preschoolers.
