Join us from the comfort of your own home for 7 weeks of learning and connection! This innovative training fills a unique niche by providing a comprehensive understanding of how the brain develops, along with ways the provider can encourage healthy brain development in children from birth to 5 years old.
This training series will be presented virtually on Zoom. Complete one unit per week on Thursdays from 6:00pm-8:30pm on the following dates: 1/6, 1/13, 1/20, 1/27, 2/3, 2/10, 2/17
Units 1 & 2 on 1/6 and 1/13 are required prerequisites for the course.
Decades of research indicate that the early years of life are a period of exponential brain development, characterized by great opportunity and vulnerability dependent on the child's relationships and environments.
The Growing Brain: From Birth to 5 Years Old allows participants to develop skills and strategies to:
- Understand the architecture and neurobiology of brain development
- Support language, cognition, prosocial behavior, and social-emotional development
- Reduce toxic stress that can negatively influence brain development of very young children.
All sessions will be taught by Beata Grantier, who brings her expertise and knowledge as a Zero to Three Certified Trainer.
This program is funded through a grant from the Northwest Minnesota Foundation.
