Save The Date: October 12, 2019 - Sesame Street in Communities Workshop @ The Kauffman Foundation Conference Center  | Kansas City | Missouri | United States

Mark your calendars: KCPT’s third Sesame Street in Communities early childcare providers workshop will take place October 12, 2019.

Every day, you make a difference by helping kids and families grow smarter, stronger, and kinder. Organizations like yours unite communities, foster families’ and kids’ resilience, nurture their physical and mental health, and provide critical early learning opportunities. You’re an important part of the “circle of care” that surrounds the families and kids who need it most.

KCPT partners with Sesame Street in Communities to support you in this critical work. Sesame Street in Communities builds on a 50-year commitment to addressing kids’ developmental, physical, and emotional needs with resources that have been proven to have a measurable impact in the lives of parents and children.

Choose from Home Care Providers or Childcare Centers learning tracks at this upcoming workshop. Two clock hours (Kansas and Missouri) can be earned.

Registration opens September, 2019. Visit KCPT Education to connect with KCPT’s Education newsletter and Facebook group or contact Gary Brock for more information and updates.

Help, Hope and Healing: How to Help Young Children Heal From Traumatic Events @ KCPT Public Television  | Kansas City | Missouri | United States

One in four children in the United States will experience an event that may cause physical, emotional or psychological distress and may threaten their safety, health and happiness in big and lasting ways. But with the latest research, the power of healing relationships (and a little help from Big Bird), these experiences do not have to define a child’s life. This session will provide an overview about trauma and how it impacts the developing young child. We will explore how it impacts the developing young child. We will explore how the Street in Communities resources can help adults navigate this difficult period in a child’s life and promote hope and healing.

Presenter:  Ann Thomas, President CEO The Children’s Place

Using Blocks in the Classroom for Early Childhood Providers @ KCPT Public Television

Using Blocks in the Classroom for Early Childhood Providers @ KCPT Public Television  | Kansas City | Missouri | United States

Blocks are universal play materials, they are found in preschool classrooms around the globe. There is a great deal of research documenting the benefits of playing with blocks; consistently showing that block play supports the development of mathematical thinking, social skills, abstract thinking, creativity, and most recently literacy.  However, despite this evidence, block play remains largely a limited “choice” activity.  This session will explore what is learned when children play in the block area, what should or might be included and the 10 things NAEYC says that children learn from block play.

Presenter:  Nancy Heathman, Early Education and Professional Development Specialist – The Family Conservancy
