Learn how to have more meaningful interactions with their littlest learners. Keith L. Pentz, National Early Childhood Specialist for Kaplan Early Learning Company, shows how to have more purposeful engagements with all infants and toddlers, both typically and atypically developing. He shares specific interactions and program decisions that directly impact and relate to creating relationships, meet any curriculum/program goals and objectives, work in any schedule, support innovative practices, and demonstrate how to “get it all done” in a busy day. Keith includes many brain-compatible learning strategies during the session.

Learn how to:

  • Name and describe a four-step process involved in learning any subject matter
  • Understand how to create an environment that precludes challenges between caregivers and children
  • Explain developmental markers for achieving optimal learning
  • Describe the importance of movement in the learning process

Infant and toddler teachers, caregivers, and administrators of early childhood programs are invited to watch this recorded event. Learn strategies to have more meaningful interactions with young learners!
