ONLINE: How are you? How am I? Emotional Literacy for Preschoolers

January 24 @ 6:15 pm - 8:15 pm

This training will focus on emotional literacy- the ability to identify, understand and express emotions and respond in a healthy manner.

Most preschool teachers are diligent about introducing their students to a large variety of literature and pre-literacy activities. But emotional literacy – the ability to identify, understand and respond to emotions in yourself and others in a healthy manner – is even more basic to school readiness. We’ll examine the many benefits to children who gain a strong foundation in emotional literacy, explore simple ways in which you can foster emotional literacy in your classroom, and share some excellent resources for tools and activities teachers can incorporate into their daily classroom curriculum to make intentional teaching of emotions fun and easy. (2 DCDEE contact hours)

Location: This training will take place ONLINE on ZOOM. A link to the training will be sent to the email address you register with, the day before the training.

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 us at our training email at training@buncombepfc.org. All checks are due 72 hours in advance unless otherwise agreed upon.

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.

I’m going to be running late. Can I still attend?

Unfortunately, DCDEE rules do not allow for credit to be given to participants that miss more than 15 minutes of a training. The participant is welcome to still attend, but CHCs or CEUs cannot be given.
