Help, Hope and Healing: How to Help Young Children Heal From Traumatic Events @ KCPT Public Television
Jan 9 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
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

Support provided by the Francis Family Foundation.

Participants will earn two clock hours and a light meal will be provided.

Using Blocks in the Classroom for Early Childhood Providers @ KCPT Public Television
Mar 12 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
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

Support provided by the Francis Family Foundation.

Participants will earn two clock hours and a light meal will be provided.
