Everyday Interactions Matter: Deep and Simple Relating in Early Learning Programs

Monday, 6:00 pm to Monday, 7:15 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Monday, repeating until October 16, 2023


The primary ingredient of quality in early learning settings begins with the everyday interactions we share with one another. These simple and ordinary moments that take place during daily routines form the foundation for connection, learning, and growing for young children and adults alike.

Throughout the “Deep and Simple Relating in Early Learning Programs” series, Allegheny County early learning professionals will engage with the Everyday Interactions Matter (EIM) approach through a process of careful observation, discussion, and self-reflection.

EIM is designed to support early learning professionals, including owners, directors, and educators, in examining the everyday moments that make up their days and sharing elements of their practice with peers. Through this strengths-based process, professionals can recognize and build upon powerful moments of connection, sharing, growing, and belonging in everyday interactions.

This event series is being offered to Allegheny County providers only.
