Extension to offer childcare, preschool training

Purdue Extension will offer a training for childcare and preschool providers on March 5 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on topics that will enlighten and entertain the staff and children at their facilities.

Purdue Extension educators will present a workshop from the “I am Moving I am Learning” curriculum.

This research-based program will allow participants to earn two hours of education towards their Paths to Quality certification.

Programs focus on school readiness, increasing activity and movement, child development and healthy eating.

This workshop will focus on “Activities for All.” Participants will gain an understanding of how to vary, modify and adapt physical activity and motor skill development to different ability levels in young children.

The session helps participants learn strategies that increase skills, development and physical activity participation for all young children.
