FREE and Fun Workshops for Home Child Care Professionals!

All Workshops are "Ohio Approved" and "Step-Up Approved".

These workshops are made possible by a grant from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services in cooperation with CET.

ORTL 1: Reducing Stress and Building Resilience
This workshop will help early childhood educators and providers to identify personal stress triggers and develop strategies to cope with stress and practice mindfulness. Participants will also practice multiple teaching strategies that will support young children’s self-regulation skills and positive social behaviors.

ORTL 2: Teaching Persistence
This workshop for early childhood educators and providers will focus on multiple teaching strategies that will support young children’s persistence in carrying out challenging tasks including self-help skills such as buttoning, tying and zipping.

ORTL 3: STEM Everywhere Every Day
Everyday routines can provide wonderful opportunities to incorporate STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) learning into a child’s day in meaningful and relevant ways. Explore resources and strategies that will engage young children in age-appropriate, STEM-related activities that connect to everyday routines.

Important Note:

**Ohio Approved is the new Step Up Approved. It includes all Step Up requirements as well as Ohio Dept. of Education requirements. As of July 1, 2017, all providers needing to fulfill Step Up requirements for Star rating will need to get Ohio Approved hours.
