We know how challenging these times are for early childhood and afterschool providers. We also know that connecting with colleagues can help. You don’t need to go through this alone.

Join us for the next in our series of Pop-Up Conversations designed to support you and your programs during the COVID-19 crisis. These conversations are free and open to all, but space is limited – RSVP early!

Equity and COVID-19: Challenges Our Children Face
Wednesday, May 20
6:30-7:30 p.m.

Before the COVID-19 crisis our early childhood education and school-age care systems faced challenges caused by inequity. Now, as we find ourselves in a pandemic, the impact of inequity is felt even more. That said, now is the time to advocate and re-write the history that has created these inequities. In this pop-up conversation, we will discuss the needs we're seeing in our fields, connect with each other and review opportunities we have to raise our voices for change. Be ready to share your observations, struggles and ideas to better our fields.

SEL: Learning at the Heart

Join us for this deeply discounted training!

A great deal of research over the last decades has demonstrated the benefits of social and emotional skills and learning. Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is about more than just targeting and building skills. It must also address the broader environment in which children live and learn. The six features common to effective SEL programs, readiness and strategies, as well as several implementation challenges, will be discussed.
