Early Head Start Staff Roll-Up Their Sleeves for Learning and Fun
The Children's Aid Society's 0-3 Early Childhood Team gathered on November 3rd for a morning of professional development. Staff came from four different sites, each with Home Based Early Head Start models. Teachers, Family Workers, Health Coordinators, Special Needs Coordinators, and Directors from PS 5, PS 8, PS 152 and East Harlem shared experiences, discussed child development, and exchanged best practices. The work of this unique group of educators is centered on home visits and weekly socialization classes. Activities and interactions are individualized to meet the needs of the child and their family. During the training, staff rolled up their sleeves to make play dough, applesauce, paper bag puppets, sensory walls, and a variety of collages. Everyone then worked together to design a socialization class around the individual activity theme. A fun time was had by all!
