We believe that when you invest in the development of young learners, the possibilities are endless!

Together we explore five ways to keep Pre-K social even in today’s unique environment. Learn how social-emotional learning can be a focus of both teachers and families as they help children build their readiness skills, developing the confidence they need to transition into kindergarten. The strategies in this edWebinar are designed to suit a wide range of children, meet them where they are, and adapt to their changing needs as they grow. These tactics acknowledge what all great educators know and what research supports: learning needs to be joyful, child friendly, and active.

Through purposeful play and active engagement, explore how to integrate social emotional learning throughout a child’s day in school and at home during all their learning activities. Using engaging music and unique, hands-on learning opportunities, children will build skills developmentally and learn routines, securing a strong foundation for their academic futures.

Watch our national presenters, Keith Kline, OTR/L and Cheryl Lundy Swift, M.Ed., who share these strategies and more with you. Throughout this edWebinar, we provide you with tips for making school-to-home connections and empowering adult co-teachers along the path to pre-K student success.

This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to pre-K teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders.
