You know who they are and they know you! We all know people who push our buttons, especially when we are tired and vulnerable. Newly emerging neuroscientific research on the adult brain helps us predict what gets under our skin (literally) and how we can stay calm around negative people. Reclaim your sense of humor and suit up to maintain your professionalism under pressure.

Join us on Friday to explore Frog Street's groundbreaking 0-5 learning continuum, which provides purposeful experiences that build strong learning foundations and foster curiosity and exploration! Written by lead author, Dr. Pam Schiller, our Infant, Toddler, Threes and Pre-K Programs are based on the latest findings in early brain development research. Our session will focus on social and emotional development which is the heart of each comprehensive program (incorporating Dr. Becky Bailey’s Conscious Discipline®). We will practice using unique materials that support intentional instruction, child-directed play, and individual differences. And, we'll explore user-friendly teacher guides that include innovative ideas for partnering with families. Let's come together to celebrate the JOY of early childhood education! All participants will be entered into drawings for fabulous Frog Street door prizes!

This training will encourage teachers to transform ordinary spaces into reflective and meaningful landscapes. With easy-to-implement ideas and strategies based on five guideposts, this training supports and encourages educators to create early childhood environments that vividly connect to children, adults, and their communities. Early childhood environments should not be just the actual space and objects within these spaces—but also a reflection of the geographical, cultural, historical, and environmental forces shaping these spaces. This training will outline the important distinction between space and place.

Join us to learn about brand new grants available to all types of programs aimed to improve outdoor learning environments. With support from the Colorado Health Foundation, we are offering new grants beginning this spring! While in our session, you will learn more about Qualistar and our efforts to elevate quality by improving everyday practice of professionals, and by building safe, supportive. We know the challenges providers and programs face in providing high-quality care, and we are driving innovation in the ways quality can be improved and sustained.
Early Learning Ventures (ELV) supports early childhood education providers with shared services model that offers ways to save money and time. ELV and APA Consulting quantified dollar and time savings from provider reported utilization. The results not only offer insights into shared services model implementation, but also about the supports providers need to achieve larger goals within the early childhood sector such as professionalizing the industry and increasing access and quality of early childhood services
Learn about the newly-launched Early Care and Education Map, a digital mapping tool that leverages neighborhood data from Denver’s seven-county region to show where quality, licensed early childhood resources are located relative to where young children live. Built to help providers, funders, policymakers and advocates who want to better understand the existing landscape of metro Denver early care and education providers, the ECE Map can inform decision-making related to public and private sector investment, provider expansion, spending of quality improvement dollars, and identifying where additional subsidies are needed.
Developed by Shift Research Lab, a program of The Piton Foundation that provides free data and analysis to help drive community change, the ECE Map utilizes data to help us better understand how far parents travel when choosing an early childhood option, ultimately helping to identify which communities have a shortage of care, which communities lack high quality care and if there is enough care in communities where vulnerable children live. Because parents’ ECE choices are based on factors that can’t be accounted for, such as choosing an ECE that’s close to work, and enrollment data isn’t reported to a centralized authority, Shift Research Lab took a creative approach to calculating accessibility that analyzed travel patterns to ECEs.
In this session, participants will get a live demonstration of the ECE Map and insight into how Shift Research Lab was able to identify a community's access to ECE facilities across metro Denver.
