Using the New Hampshire Early Learning Standards: A Practical, Idea-Filled Day to Make the Standards Truly Come Alive in Your Early Childhood Program
Special Saturday Event
with Gaye Gronlund
Making NH Early Learning Standards come ALIVE
This day of training will give early childhood educators who work with young children from birth through age five a better understanding of the New Hampshire Early Learning Standards (ELS). Practical suggestions will be shared to help participants become more familiar with the content of the standards for the various age groups and consider the best ways to make use of them in their early childhood programs. Opportunities for hands-on practice in implementing the ELS will be offered along with many group discussions and interactive experiences.  The goal is for early childhood professionals to walk away from the day feeling confident about using the New Hampshire Early Learning Standards in their classrooms.
