Early Years PIR

PIR- Building Early Years Learning Communities



  

                     
Participate in a professional development opportunity that allows for teachers, working with children in the early years, to collaborate by sharing common language and goals. Educators will gain a greater understanding about early childhood development (birth to age 8) by collaborating with each other around the following identified topics:
  • Early Learning Standards and how they align with Kindergarten Common Core.
  • Social/Emotional learning that occurs and how Executive Functioning Skills set children up for success in and outside of school.
  • Transition from Preschool to Kindergarten and how to make that process meaningful and informational for families and schools.
