Reimagining School Readiness - In-person workshop at Plainfield-Guilford Public Library

The Reimagining School Readiness Toolkit is a suite of research-backed resources created for library staff to help families prepare children ages 0 to 8 for success in school and in life. Through an interactive presentation with hands-on activities, this training will introduce library staff to the research, practical implications, and resources offered in the toolkit, which is available in its entirety for free online. Participants will understand key findings from current cognitive and developmental psychology research, reflect on the implications of those findings for their daily work, and gain practical ready-to-implement ideas for activities, as well as resources for staff training and for parents/caregivers. You will benefit from this workshop if you work with children ages 0 to 8 and their families and would like to learn more about how to offer research-backed programming in your library!

This in-person workshop is 4 hours and is worth 4 LEUs.

Those who attended virtual workshops (offered August 16 & 17) do not need to attend in-person--content is same.  Scheduled to coincide with with ILF Youth Services conference.
