Pyramid Plus Approach with LJ Werner

September 18 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Recurring Trainings Event Series (See All)

If you are looking for a course that gives you tools to promote social emotional development, inclusion, prevent behaviors, and help you feel successful as an early childhood provider. Look no further! This stuff works:) I use it daily in my inclusive preschool classroom and have watched programs transform using these evidence-based best practices.

Structure of Training: The materials are developed so participants will be able to apply strategies and tools in their practice. Presentation will be delivered in a manner that systematically breaks the content into 18 sessions with specific topics and strategies, which provide concrete examples based in a variety of settings (center based and home).

Pyramid Plus Approach Training meets the state requirements for Child Guidance Strategies and is considered a training of special recognition in CO Shines. Your certificate does not expire. College credit opportunities available after completion. To receive a certificate of attendance you must attend ALL days of training and complete ALL 18 sessions.

Cost: $425
