Course Description

Successful relationships are wonderful - they are deep, lasting, joyful, precious. Successful relationships are difficult - they can be frustrating and require hard work, determination, connection. Successful relationships are absolutely necessary - beginning with early attachment, they form the foundation for positive adaptive behavior throughout our lives. One of the most important jobs we have as teachers of young children is to provide the kinds of activities, guidance and support necessary to help our children begin to form successful relationships with adults and peers. Songs are a fabulous tool to help. This workshop will focus on using songs as a tool to develop a sense of community among the group and to foster the building of relationships. Participants will discover why songs are important and how they help, and they will learn songs that help young children express their ideas, notice each other, and listen to the ideas of others. We'll experiment with "zipper" songs that help children tell their stories, and "contained" songs that tell the stories of other people. Mostly we'll have a lot of fun as we explore the myriad ways in which songs help children make sense of their world. This workshop is appropriate for all levels of teaching. Also recommended for supervisors and center directors.

Room Location: Ontario Convention Center
Meeting Room Name: 104A
Theater Style: 58

Learning Level: Appropriate for All

Language: English

Course Description

The notion that leaders are born and not made is a myth, and this is especially true within the field of early childhood care and education. The ECE field is at a crucial turning point and on the edge of being able to shape an ECE system that reflects the collective wisdom of practitioners, experts, child/family advocates, researchers, and policy makers. A comprehensive ECE system requires a strong cadre of leaders who represent the cultural and ethnic diversity of the young children and families served. The need for leaders who are knowledgeable of child development content as well as the field as a whole, and who are informed of the larger landscape in relation to policy and politics has never been greater than it is today. This workshop is appropriate for all audience levels who want to increase their awareness of the importance of leadership development within the ECE field and want to learn concrete strategies for developing leadership in self and others. An emphasis is on using an evidenced-based 5-step logic model successfully used to facilitate new and seasoned professionals in developing their leadership capacities through self-discovery, reflection, goal setting, and thoughtful and intentional planning and action.

Learning Level: Appropriate for All

Language: English

Course Description

Education Through Music (ETM) will offer a refreshing approach to teaching and learning through song, experience, and play. ETM is a child-centered philosophy which focuses on promoting emotional, social, cognitive, musical and language development through best-practice teaching of song and play. The study and enactment of ETM materials and philosophy with children yields results that include increased intrinsic motivation, sustained focus and attention, heightened musicality, greater regard for others, and stronger group singing, movement and play. This can be used by teachers of young children from birth through age nine, parents, care-givers, speech and language pathologists, occupational therapists, child-care providers and anyone who is working with children. We have had success working with children with special needs and have adaptations of the materials to meet the needs of these special learners. The materials are presented in an interactive format where the participants will learn the materials by engaging in them. We sing and play the song games with the teachers at the workshop so they are better able to remember the materials and take them back to their classrooms. We also take time to comment on these experiences during the workshop.

Learning Level: Appropriate for All

Language: English

Course Description

This workshop is intended for all Early Childhood Educators with various levels of teaching experience. Imagine a classroom without walls where children can explore and engage in open-ended play. A classroom that extends to the outdoors so children can learn about nature, ecology and conservation. This workshop will describe the journey of the MiraCosta College Child Development Center to enrich their outdoor environments to become an Outdoor Classroom Project Demonstration site. The workshop will show practical, concrete steps that can be used in a wide variety of settings so that children and teachers can reap the benefits of an enriched outdoor environment. We will describe our transformation through the phases of observation, assessment, and planning that were used to improve the quality of our outdoor environments. Participants will learn how teacher engagement differs from playground supervision. During this workshop, participants will learn how to plan and implement outdoor classroom settings in their centers and will learn about the positive impact outdoor classrooms have in lessening the impact of "nature deficiency" in children.

Room Location: Ontario Convention Center
Meeting Room Name: 104B
Theater Style: 260

Learning Level: Intermediate

Language: English

Course Description

Drawing from my work in developing movement stories that reflect the culture of the young children in the class, I will guide the workshop participants on how to connect to students through their cultures.

One critical step is forming family partnerships. In these partnerships, family members and teachers collaborate to share each child’s culture and traditions in the classroom. It is important that the teacher also is an active participant in this cultural exploration so that the child feels that the teacher cares deeply about him. In this context, teachers should also tell stories to the children, drawing from each child’s culture.

In addition to stories, facets of the culture can be introduced through music, language, arts and craft, food preparations, dress, decorations, culturally specific toys and games. In fact, when many of these elements are woven into a cultural story, the story becomes more meaningful and delightful to the children. An example is a French movement story that the author developed to relate to a French student in a preschool class. The French story included French words, French music, and a traditional French game.

In conclusion, this workshop presentation will include a review of research done in this field, the powerful effect of movement and stories on brain development, examples of movement stories, results of the author’s work in the field, and guidance on how participants can bring culturally relevant activities into their own classroom.

Introducing a child’s culture into the classroom helps establish an atmosphere of acceptance and support. In such a classroom, children develop confidence and pride in their own culture as well as openness towards other cultures and traditions. This broad outlook on cultural diversity combined with strong roots in one’s own traditions is the perfect balance that educators should strive to attain for their own students.

Room Location: Ontario Convention Center
Meeting Room Name: 107C
Theater Style: 85

Learning Level: Introductory

Language: English

Course Description

Forming a supportive partnership with families is a crucial role of early childhood educators. This workshop explores ways teachers and directors can create a family-friendly environment, and how to help parents grow in their understanding of their children's development. We will talk about a variety of ways in which parent growth can happen in a vibrant preschool or childcare setting, through mutually respectful relationships with teachers, through participation in classroom activities, and through special educational programs the school can offer to families. When teachers realize that they are, by definition, educators of parents as well as of children, they can be intentional about how to make all interactions with families supportive of the children's and the parents' development.

Learning Level: Introductory

Language: Spanish

Course Description

Los participantes considerarán los parámetros ambientales que apoyan la colaboración entre los proveedores de cuidado infantil en el hogar y las familias que están bajo su cuidado. Desde nuestra perspectiva, profundizaremos en el impacto de las fortalezas, necesidades, rutinas, esperanzas, así como las expectaciones.
Comenzaremos por responder a la pregunta: ¿Cómo apreciar no solo al niño en si sino también las experiencias que tiene el niño con el mundo? ¿Y cómo esa apreciación se demuestra en la manera en que preparamos el ambiente? ¿Qué es lo que ellos aprenden de este, cómo reaccionan a los eventos? ¿A la gente que los rodea, y que es lo que se espera de ellos y de otros que también están conectados profundamente por su relación con los padres de familia, así como la conducta de los padres y el ambiente de los hogares en los que ellos viven?” Neuron to Neighborhoods

Participants will consider the environmental parameters that support partnerships between family child care providers and the families in their care. We will delve into the impact of serving mixed age groups on our perspectives, strengths, needs, routines, hopes and expectations. We will begin to answer the question, how do we appreciate not only who the child is but also the child's experience of the world? And how does this appreciation show itself the way we set up our environments?

"What young children learn, how they react to events and people around them, and what they expect from themselves and others are deeply affected by their relationships with parents, the behavior of parents and the environment of the homes in which they live." Neuron to Neighborhoods

Estos conceptos serán explorados por medio de actividades prácticas. El taller está abierto a todos aquellos interesados en aumentar su conocimiento sobre el cuidado de bebes y niños pequeños en casa o en centros.
El resultado de décadas de investigación en el Instituto Pikler en Budapest, ha encontrado que los niños pequeños se desarrollan muy bien cuando se les permite ser partícipes de su propio cuidado y cuando se les da la confianza para que sean ellos mismos quienes inicien el juego. Elsa Chahin hablará sobre las necesidades emocionales, cognitivas y físicas de los niños y de cómo sus compañeros, los adultos, y el ambiente los apoyan respectivamente.
Este taller de introducción a la estrategia Pikler repasará la importancia del movimiento y desarrollo auto-iniciado del juego, sus costumbres internas, las etapas comúnmente subestimadas de este desarrollo y las condiciones de tal desarrollo. El taller resaltará la importancia de que el cuidado físico de los niños debe ser atento y cuidadoso, así como también sus principios básicos. El taller también hablará y comparará las características típicas de la relación padre-hijo y la relación entre el niño y un profesional en cuidado de niños. El nombre de Emmi Pikler es cada vez más reconocido en el ámbito académico mundialmente. Sus principios acerca del cuidado de los niños están siendo ampliamente utilizados; permitiéndoles libertad a los niños y así ayudando a que sus vidas, juntos con los adultos que cuidan de ellos, tengan un enfoque en la relación y sean llenas de respeto mutuo.

1.Participants will learn new tools on how to elicit cooperation from children
2.Participants will learn research driven strategies on how to respect children's natural gross motor development.
3.Participants will learn how to slow down and be present to the child in their care.
4.Participants will learn why it is important to be mindfully present and attentive during all caregiving interactions and the role that this plays in child's development of self-esteem.

This workshop is designed to explore how to respect and integrate views of the child's motor development and social-emotional development in ways that enhance and balance the cognitive aspects and elicit cooperation during caregiving routines. Many of these concepts will be explored with a variety of experiential activities. It is open to everyone who is interested in increasing knowledge of how to care for infants and toddlers at home or in centers.

Decades of research from the Pikler Institute in Budapest suggest young children thrive when they are recognized as participants in their own care and trusted to be initiators during play. Elsa Chahin will discuss children's social-emotional, cognitive and physical needs and how the adults, the children's peers, and the environment support them accordingly.


This introductory workshop to the Pikler Approach will review the importance of self-initiated movement and development of play, its inner regularities, the often overlooked stages of this development, and the conditions of such development. The workshop will highlight the importance of careful and attentive physical care and its basic principles. The workshop will also discuss and compare the characteristic features of the parent-child relationship and the relationship between the child and the professional child care provider. Emmi Pikler's name is more and more well-known among academics working with young children around the world. They apply her care-giving principles to allow freedom for the child, helping to ensure their life together is relationship-based and full of respect for each other.

Participants will deepen their knowledge about infant-toddler care and education through learning about our most important pedagogical principles, everyday experiences and also about the results of research carried out by the Pikler Institute.
