CDR staff coordinates with Early Childhood Educators to develop and provide opportunities for children to participate in developmentally appropriate early learning activities that support their cognitive, socio-emotional and physical growth while their parent/caregiver is participating in workshop sessions. Workshop Facilitators engage the Early Educators by assisting in planning opportunities for parents and caregivers to interact with the children during the workshop series, model appropriate interactions, provide positive reinforcement to participants and build on “touch points” to promote the integration of information presented during the workshops.
Some subject areas covered in the workshops are:
Ages and stage of early child development
Health and Nutrition
Identifying areas of concern or special needs
Developing healthy family relationships
