Introduction to Designing Environment

While human relationships play a key role in a child’s healthy development, the physical and temporal environments also have a significant impact. When environments are engaging, they support a child’s participation in activities that promote development and learning.

This course will assist you in designing the physical space, the contents and grouping arrangements in the indoor environment. (2.5 clock hours) 

Teaching Strategies to Enhance Transitions

Are cleanup times and activity changes stressing you out? Transitions occur multiple times throughout the day in the early childhood program.

In this course, participants will explore the importance of planning for transitions and learn the components of an effective transition. (2.5 clock hours)
