Calm down! Creating Outdoor Spaces to Support Emotional Regulation

July 18 @ 6:15 pm - 7:45 pm

Join SHAPE NC Specialist Natasha Bowden in learning the how and why of creating outdoor play spaces that calm, engage, and support children and staff in both infant/toddler and 3-5 year old play spaces. You will learn about calming centers, alone spaces, sensory/therapeutic gardens, angry areas, and social interaction areas such as the music center and buddy benches.  You will explore how these support children with regulation disorders, children on the spectrum, or those who have suffered/are currently suffering trauma or toxic stress.

Is my registration transferable?

Things happen! If for some reason you are unable to attend this training after you have registered, you may send someone in your place! Just be sure to let us know (training@buncombepfc.org).

What is the refund policy?

Unfortunately, we do not offer refunds for trainings, unless Buncombe Partnership for Children cancels the event. Instead, we do offer ‘credits’ that can be applied to future trainings you wish to attend. To receive credits for future training you must cancel at least 24 hours in advance. You are responsible for contacting us should you wish you transfer your credit to another training.

Can I pay with cash or check?

If your organization must pay by check, please contact Stevie Alverson at 828.407.2058 or stevie@buncombepfc.org. All checks are due 72 hours in advance unless otherwise agreed upon. If we do not receive payment 72 hours in advance we will open up those seats for other registrants. Unfortunately, we cannot accept cash. If you do not have a credit card or feel uncomfortable using a credit card online, consider asking a friend to register you and giving them cash.
