This is a 1.5-hour professional development opportunity for Gila River Indian Community childcare providers, teachers, and parents of young children (0-8 years).

As a result of COVID-19, families around the world are needing to adjust, adapt, and keep each other safe. In response, Sesame Workshop is launching the Caring for Each Other initiative. We will talk through how to stay calm, in control and healthy with Sesame Street in Communities resources.

Upon completion of the workshop and follow-up surveys, you will receive children’s books and other tools to support your important work with children and families. Providers will also receive 1.5 credit hours of professional development credit in the Arizona Early Childhood Workforce and Professional Development Registry.

Supporting you as you make a difference in children’s lives.

Sesame Street in Communities, an initiative from nonprofit media and educational organization Sesame Workshop, is a resource collection to help kids and families during the early years of birth through six, a critical window for brain development.

The videos, activities, printables and digital interactives feature friendly, furry Muppets and help caregivers playfully, meaningfully engage with kids during everyday moments. The site covers a wide range of topics in both English and Spanish, from school readiness to building healthy habits to tough issues such as divorce and hunger.

In conjunction with Sesame Street in Communities, Arizona PBS is providing interactive courses and online webinars created for early childhood educators working in a classroom, center-based program or family child-care setting. These are entirely FREE and easy as 1-2-3! All of the courses are self-paced — you can start, stop and begin again as your schedule allows. Each interactive course or webinar will satisfy DHS Child Care Learning and Quality First requirements for professional development training hours.
