Fox Valley Chapter of WECA: Bullying with Mary Wonderlick

We are becoming concerned about bullying as it appears to be creeping down to younger children. It is important to carefully define bullying, to be prepared with appropriate responses intended to decrease bullying and assist in the elimination of bullying behaviors. We also need to know how to talk with parents about this feared behavior and how to teach children to defend themselves from bullying.

Fox Valley Chapter of WECA: Literacy Bags with Stephanie Winkle

As early childhood professionals, we engage children’s brains everyday. However, we often see a disconnect between home and childcare. Parents and guardians may not know or have the resources to engage their children in early literacy at home. You can help by creating a “lending library” of literacy bags for parents to borrow. Learn how to create, maintain, and distribute literacy bags in this workshop.
