Everyday Interactions Matter | Online Series

Tuesday, 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm Free

Are you an early childhood educator in Allegheny County who is interested in learning how to recognize powerful moments of connecting, sharing, growing, and belonging in your everyday interactions with young children? Join Everyday Interactions Design Strategist Sarah Grubb in August for a three-part professional growth series!

This series is open to early childhood educators in Allegheny County. Participants should commit to all three sessions. Six PQAS credit hours are available.

Everyday Interactions Matter

During this series, early learning professionals will engage with the Everyday Interactions Matter approach through a process of careful observation, discussion, and self-reflection. Authentic video clips of ordinary interactions between educators and children will serve as the raw material for deepening participants’ observational skills and self-reflection.

These simple moments that take place during play, transition, and daily routines form the very foundation of learning and growth for children. Through this reflective process, educators will begin to recognize the powerful moments of connecting, sharing, growing, and belonging in their everyday interactions with young children.
