Dr. Allyson Matczuk will bring the workshop to a close with her presentation, "What is Possible".  The decisions we make as educators and parents reflect our beliefs and philosophies. Do we know how to provide the best opportunities for each child?  How can we approach learning experiences for young children with an open mind and an open heart?  Understanding that as the children in our care continue to grow and learn, their development is based on the foundations we have provided is critical.  Is it possible to be re-assured that we are doing the best for each child?
This day promises to be some of the best professional learning you have ever participated in.  It will challenge and encourage you in your everyday experiences with young children.
