A Crucial Set of Skills for the Most Crucial Time
As early-childhood educators, you play one of the most crucial roles for our children: seeing them through the first years of life. Wellpoint wants to help you recognize the signs of trauma and its impact on the developing mind and body. And most importantly – to provide children in your care the support that helps them learn and grow.
Significant development occurs in children from ages zero to three. Sometimes their brains, bodies and behaviors change so quickly, you can notice a difference from one day to the next. That’s why it’s so crucial for early-childhood educators to be well versed in the science of adversity.
Trauma Informed Care Learning Opportunities for Early Childhood Educators
Trauma Informed Care professional development and learning opportunities are tailored to the early-childhood care sector so you can:
- Recognize toxic stress and its impact on the developing mind and body
- Learn developmentally appropriate regulation strategies specifically for infants and young children
- Suggest co-regulation activities for children and their parents or caregivers at home
- Develop ongoing strategies for nurturing children who have had adversity in their young lives
- Create trauma informed best practices in your school environment
A Variety of Ways to Learn
You could start with an introduction to Trauma Sensitive Schools or join one of our FREE networking communities, like the Compassion Curve for Early Care Educators or a Trauma Sensitive Schools Networking Meeting. If you would like to bring a customized Trauma Informed Early Care presentation to your site, please ask.
