Concurrent Sessions, Descriptions

Karen Roberts, certified group exercise instructor, Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA)

Geared for all participants, the instructor will share her desire to inspire active physical development and wellness for children, families and caregivers. Yoga and creative movements are fun and beneficial for both children and teachers. This training will provide opportunities that teachers can use themselves and take back to the classroom to use with the children. Teachers will learn stress-relieving techniques that are fun and engaging for all ages. Yoga can help children manage anxiety, boost self-esteem and enhance concentration and memory along with so many other benefits.

Michele Stottlemyer, Child Care Choices

This training addresses the importance of self-care for teachers and administrators.  Through self-reflective, hands-on activities and experiences, teachers will explore and increase their familiarity with best practices in self-care, including breathing techniques, using mantras, getting enough rest and feeling gratitude. Providers and administrators will create a plan to increase the use of self-care strategies in their programs.
