Participants will learn how to apply the WMELS Performance Standards to determine what children should know and be able to do, plan learning experiences, provide supportive environments and collect data to ensure that all children are learning and making progress. Parking is available behind the building at the Northeast Corner of the parking lot or in the street.

Social & Emotional Competence: Pyramid Model Training for Family Child Care Providers

Pyramid Model is a 24-hour training series, provided in eight 3-hour segments focused on preventing and minimizing challenging behaviors. Participants register with the intention of attending all eight trainings. This will be an exclusive cohort of FCC providers. We will look at the curriculum through a FCC provider’s lens.  

The training meets on 8 Saturdays, 9am-12pm on these dates:
2016: Nov. 5, Dec. 3
2017: Jan. 7, Feb. 4, Mar. 4, Apr. 1, Apr.29, May 20.

In addition to the training, would you like to join a FCC Community of Practice (CoP)? Indicate below.
A Community of Practice will provide an opportunity for family child care providers to support each other’s learning. The Pyramid Model Trainer will facilitate the gatherings of the Community of Practice, but content will be driven by the group participants. 4-6  two-hour meetings will be held on a weekday evening, dates and times to be determined by the participants. Also included is an on-line platform for on-going communication. Monetary stipends will be provided to enhance implementation of Pyramid Model strategies. Meetings in the WECA Madison office downstairs conference room, 744 Williamson Street, Madison.

Funded by the Southern Region Collaborating Partners and 
Race to the Top Early Learning Challenge Grant.

If you’ve had Pyramid Model training within the last 3 years, you are welcome to sign up for the Community of Practice only, at no cost to you.
