“It’s good to be curious about many things.” – Fred Rogers
8:00am – 2:00pm
Elmwood Franklin School
Registration Now Open!
Are you curious about how to:
Promote positive behaviors?
Show children they are cherished?
Strengthen everyday adult-child
Join us to learn more about Simple Interactions, an innovative, strength-based approach to professional development.
Presentations by Dr. Annie McNamara, Fred Rogers Institute
8:30am – 11:30am
How do we encourage, enhance, and empower the human relationships around children? Real and lasting change can start with finding what ordinary people do extraordinarily well with children in simple, everyday moments.
Simple Interactions is a practice-based, relationship-centered, and community-supported approach to focus quality improvement efforts on its most essential active ingredient: daily interactions between helpers and children.
12:00pm – 2:00pm
By capturing and learning from what ordinary people do extraordinarily well in simple, everyday moments, we can grow practice, nurture intuition into intention, and plant the seeds for sustainable change.
Participants will gain a deeper
understanding of the role of human interactions in child development and will identify simple moments as the catalyst for positive change in child-serving settings.

We look forward to welcoming you!

THANK YOU TO ALL WHO ATTENDED THIS GREAT EVENT!
Chautauqua County Chapter of NYAEYC
See what Chris Wigren, a NYAEYC member, has to say about her involvement in the Association!
What has been your most rewarding Chapter event? The Annual Early Childhood Conferences held each year – county and state
Why? It is an opportunity for those who attend to grow and to learn from and to be inspired by the keynote and workshop presenters, which ultimately benefits the children in their care. Also to be able to network and be more enthused about our field.
What is the most valuable part of being a member of NYAEYC?
It is the privilege and honor of working along side some of the most dedicated early childhood advocates Chautauqua County and New York State has to offer.
Thoughts about being a NYAEYC member. It means an opportunity to be united with others from across the State and country (NAEYC) in sharing a vision or a goal or a mindset of always keeping at the forefront of all that we do or say – what is best for young children.
