Early Childhood Workshops and Trainings

Fall 2020 Workshop and Training Calendar

Our vision at Partners for Children & Families is to create a community that is actively engaged in the development of our children. Typically our quarterly training calendar has been developed specifically for local child care providers. Moore County's early educators work hard with us to maintain a number of certifications and professional development hours. This is a service we will continue to provide virtually, and in-person once possible. 
Now is a time when it is particularly important for us all to stay connected, develop relationships, and find the resources we need. We hope to bring you learning opportunities that will benefit not only you but your whole family. We are excited to now open our trainings and workshops to the greater community. 
All workshops and trainings are free. Please click the links below to register.

The training includes information on health and safety, environmental design, child development, appropriate activities, guiding child behavior, and quality school age care. This training is required by the NC Division of Child Development and Early Education for school age care professionals working in licensed programs but is a great training for new staff in any afterschool program setting.  Participants will engage in 5 hours of online coursework that includes PowerPoint presentations, video clips, required reading materials, online polls, and interactive slides to encourage interaction and engagement.
