The Contra Costa Child Care Council would like to thank you for submitting a proposal to present a workshop at the 23rd Annual Child Care Council Early Learning Conference. We will notify you of our decision in January 2017.
This year’s conference title is;
Recognizing Trauma: The Art of Helping One Another Heal
Saturday, March 25, 2017
Diablo Valle College, 321 Golf Club Rd., Pleasant Hill, CA 94523
The theme of this conference will highlight the importance of trauma awareness in child care programs and strategies for resilience and healing.
We plan to have workshops on topics such as; trauma, adverse childhood experience, social emotional competence, building relationships, five protective factors for strengthening families, engaging fathers, yoga, meditation, dance therapy, art for healing, etc.
Our conference participants typically consist of approximately 60% early childhood teachers from child care centers, 30% licensed family child care providers and 10% parents and early childhood education students.
Although a majority of the workshops throughout the day will be related to the theme, we welcome other workshop topics that promote professional development and support the needs of children.
We hope you will take this opportunity to share your knowledge and expertise with the early childhood educators in Contra Costa County.
