We also offer personalized, on-site training workshops for your staff, Resource and Referral Agency, Pre-K Program, or Child Care Association that incorporate hands-on opportunities to learn how to appropriately implement our curriculums.
Orientation for teachers new to our program or Supplemental Training/Repeat Training is available for Buttercups® and/or Fireflies®. Using a curriculum framework is a solid way to assist educators in applying theory to practice, and customized training maximizes the benefit teachers experience from investing in a curriculum. This type of training also helps ensure best practices are being used by teachers.
You may also consider sessions on additional topics that we will customize for you, such as math, science, or sensory activities; mixed age group settings; parent invitational (to introduce parents to our programs); or other staff development workshops as requested.
