Exploring Mental Health Disorders in Infancy and Early Childhood

A baby’s social and emotional development are the foundation to all other aspects of development as the brain architecture is increasing and evolving.  Mental health disorders in young children can be difficult to distinguish but recognition and treatment are vital to influencing a child’s development, personality, educational achievements and their potential to live satisfying and productive lives. In this session we will explore how early childhood educators can help identify mental health issues in the children they care for and what resources are available.

Games On!  Learning through Games 

There is no need to make excuses for playing games in a quality Early Childhood program as research shows that many of the classic games we associate with early childhood help with cognitive development as well as provide practice in gross motor, language and social skills.  We will play some old favorites, learn some new games and together discover all the standards/objectives that can be met in the process.  We will look at how to implement games during the day and ways to insure a successful Family Game Night.
