Training Geared at School Readiness Support

baby2 300MADISONVILLE, Ky. (10/24/13) – The Regional Training Center of Murray will be providing free training for parents of children birth-5 years as well as childcare providers from 9 a.m. to noon and from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2 at the Madisonville Health Campus located on 750 N. Laffoon Street.

The event also is being hosted by the Hopkins County Community Early Childhood Council and paid for with funds from the Governor’s Office of Early Childhood.

“This is all about kindergarten readiness. We write and receive a grant each year; and, this year, we received a grant for $25, 000,” said Kathy Evans-Mitchell, chairman. “We want to empower child care providers in Hopkins County.”

Morning breakout sessions include: Infant Toddler, which includes the everyday opportunities to expand language during daily care routines and baby doll circle time-self regulation; Preschool, which includes measuring school readiness in Kentucky and Scaffolding questions in the classroom. Afternoon group sessions will include dialogic readings.

“Because almost all childcare providers are mostly independent with a few exceptions,” said Mitchell. “They are required to have professional developmental hours and stay abreast to all the changes. And normally they would have to pay for those hours, but we are in conjunction with the regional training center out of Murray and those who are providers will get certificates. We are providing breakout sessions with credentialed trainers to offer information and training hours for the providers as well as information sessions for parents of this age. ”

Mitchell said there will be books provided for the event and one that will be specially ordered for those who register.

“Those who attend and participate, we will order them this book and send it to them, the book costs about $50,” said Mitchell. “Last year, we had 50 plus participants, this year we are hoping to exceed that.”

To pre-register or to learn more about this event, can call Kathy at 270-821-1455 or 270-339-9162.
