WSWHE BOCES in partnership with the Capital District Child Care Council is pleased to announce this 2017-2018 "Continuing the Conversation" series of Professional Development opportunities for early childhood professionals.

At times, it can be important to pull back from everyday details of your prekindergarten program and take an honest looks at its overall quality. This can be a much easier task if you have a plan. The Environment Rating Scaled (ERS) is a set of tools you can use to break down an evaluation of your whole program into its different facets, so you can see the strengths of your program as well as the areas where you need to grow. This workshop will give an overview of the Early Childhood Environmental Rating Scale (ECERS) used for early childhood programs who serve preschool children ages 3 to 5 as well as kindergarten classrooms. Kindergarten Round Up will continue the ongoing discussion about current practices within the region specific to the Kindergarten Registration process. This will include visits to programs, testing, activities, and practices local districts use. **Due to NYS COSER Regulations, these workshops are not eligible for aid reimbursement.
