Learn to Grow Garlic
Monday, 10/03/2016 (06:30 PM - 07:00 PM)

Come and listen to Naomi Scanlon of Two Sisters' Garlic at Clough Tavern Farm in Canterbury discuss how to plant and grow garlic.

 

October is the time to plant hard-neck garlic, which is usually harvested in the month of July. However, hard-neck garlic produces garlic scapes in June, which can be turned into a wonderful pesto or chopped up and used in your soups, marinades, roasts, and everyday recipes. Once the scapes are cut, all of the plant energy goes into growing the bulbs underground.

 

Come learn how easy it is to grow garlic and get your questions answered by Naomi at the Boscawen Municipal Complex (4th floor).

Building a Foundation for the Future: Promoting Social Emotional Competency in Infants and Toddlers
Monday, 10/10/2016 (06:00 PM - 09:00 PM)

Promoting Social Emotional Learning in Early Childhood
Building a Foundation for the Future:
Promoting Social Emotional Competency in Infants and Toddlers

Social competency can seem mysterious. Some infants and toddlers seem to connect easily with everybody and others seem to struggle to fit in. Social and emotional competence involves a child’s ability to regulate and express emotions and form close and secure relationships. It involves skills such as self-confidence, curiosity, motivation, persistence, and self-control. Infant/Toddler professionals have an important role in promoting the social emotional learning.

Grounded in the research-based “Pyramid Model” developed at the Center on the Social Emotional Foundation of Early Learning (CSEFEL), this series will utilize material from the CSEFEL Infant/Toddler training modules to  provide a thorough framework of strategies to support emerging social emotional competence in very young children.

 

 

September 12: Module 1 - Understanding Social Emotional Development

This module will focus on developing a “deep dive” thorough understanding of social emotional competency, how it develops and the infant/toddler 
professional’s role in promoting social emotional learning.

September 26: Module 2 - Forming and Sustaining Relationships with Young Children and Families

This module will focus on how relationships with infants and toddlers and their families are crucial in creating a positive social/emotional climate in your program. Through the lens of attachment, strategies for forming and sustaining relationships with children and families while navigating the day to day challenges of working in an infant/toddler setting will be presented. This will include strategies for supporting parents in forming positive secure relationships.

October 10: Module 3 - Creating High Quality Supportive Environments for Promoting Social Emotional Learning

This module will focus on how the physical environment, schedules and routines support the social/emotional development of infants and toddlers. Strategies for providing individualized responsive care and education will be presented.

October 24: Module 4 - Using Targeted strategies to build social emotional skills

This module will focus on emotional literacy, the ability to identify, understand and express emotions in a healthy way, as well as the ability to recognize emotions in others. Strategies for promoting age appropriate social and emotional skills will be presented.

November 5: Module 5 + 6 - A Relationship based approach to challenging behavior

This module will focus on understanding and responding to challenging behavior. Strategies for understanding the meaning behind challenging behaviors and strategies for helping toddlers learn the skills to begin to understand and regulate their emotions and behaviors will be an emphasis. Strategies for helping parents and caregivers respond to challenging behaviors will also be explored.
