Toddler Toileting & Montessori @ Home

Saturday, February 5th, 2022, 9:00 – 11:00 AM

Toileting is a process of discovery for young children that can begin as early as one year old. From the feeling of soiling to flushing the toilet and playing with water in the sink, the process is meant to be one that is enjoyable for a toddler and parents, not stressful!
Join us to learn from our Toddler guides on how to avoid “trauma and drama” during the toilet learning process. Our hope is to remove the dread and stress, and replace it with a sense of great pride and achievement. We’ll also guide you on how to set up activities and workspaces in the home that foster your child’s independence, confidence, and cooperation.

Recognizing Academic, Social, and Emotional Needs of Children

Thursday, February 24th, 2022, 6-7 PM

Students vary in the ability to learn in an educational setting, so understanding diverse learning needs is important in educational institutions. Learn about student diversity, learning about the children, and different teaching methods for them. As the students enter the classroom, they bring with them a unique background, set of skills, and educational needs. The most important thing you can do to help educate your students is to learn as much about them as possible. Another key component for learning about the child is communication between school and families. We have a guest speaker joining to share more information on recognizing academic, social & emotional needs of the children.
