Happy New Year to ALL!
It is hard to believe that 2022 is here. Like you, we are hopeful the pandemic is on its last legs and we can get back to some sense of normalcy. The early childhood industry has been hit hard by it (the pandemic). According to the Center for the Study of Child Care Employment, Child Care as a whole has lost 111K jobs since February 2020. With that being said, it looks like we are slowly recovering, but we all need to keep our skills sharp and stay abreast of the resources available to us as early childhood educators.
Our February Seminar is the first in-person offering for CHILD in two years. We understand that not everyone is comfortable congregating with others to attend a training, so we will continue to offer our sessions virtually as well.
We are excited about this session as it features two heavy-hitters in the field. We encourage you to sign-up and enjoy the presentations from Gary and Jerletha. You will leave this session with a smile on your face and a lot to take back home and unwrap.
Join us in kicking our 2022 off with a BANG!
Seminars will be presented via Zoom and a Zoom link will be sent to registered participants several days prior to each seminar. Our in-person attendees will watch these sessions via Zoom at the United Way of Greater Houston and will receive a goodie bag and a boxed lunch.
All attendees will be registered to win a $200 gift card courtesy of Lakeshore Learning.
