Jefferson County Child Care Association Provider Appreciation Meeting
Mark your calendars for the 2019 JCCCA Provider Appreciation meeting-Wednesday, April 24th at 6:30 pm. This year's meeting will feature published author and local ECE professor Dr Francis Wardle. Dr Wardle's presentation will be “Providing a Goodness-of-Fit for Young Boys in Early Care & Education”. Statistics show that, compared to young girls, young boys as a group are more likely to be suspended and expelled, placed in special education, have discipline problems and/or are not considered ready for kindergarten. This presentation examines some reasons for this problem and then provides a variety of suggestions for how we can increase the chances of success for the young boys that we serve. Training hours: 1 hour Social Emotional (TP 35.1) & ½ hour Child Growth, Development & Learning (CGDL 7.1) A fiesta bar dinner will be provided by Central area JCCCA members. This meeting and training is free for current JCCCA members. Non-members can attend for $10 paid at the door. Or even better, join JCCCA today and receive 15+ hours of training a year at no additional cost! Membership application can be found at http://www.jeffcochildcare.org
