Early Education Directors' Day
Connect and engage with early education leaders to collaborate for the well-being of early educators and students! Mrs. Betsy Winkle, Director of Educational Services at All Belong will lead us toward a better understanding of trauma so that we can be equipped to support the learning and behavior of affected students in our early ed programs.
Designed to Flourish - Leading and Planning with a Trauma-informed Lens: Understanding Developmental Trauma
We will learn about the neurological impact of trauma on children and strategies to support children in the school setting, imbedded with the truth that we are all created in God’s image. This work invites us to think about the impact of trauma on a child's learning, behavior, and development; to focus on healing through relationships; and to plan how to set up our school environments to promote healing. This event is designed for you as an early education leader to engage and collaborate with peers and leave the day of training with a plan to implement strategies with your early education team.
