Frontier Extension District plans professional development workshop for childhood caregivers

Frontier Extension District has scheduled a professional development workshop for anyone who provides care for children.

Noting that research has found that people thrive when they use their greatest strengths, the workshop will help childcare givers identify character strengths of children they care for, and give them opportunities to apply them. This makes children feel good about themselves and their lives.

The professional development workshop will help early childhood/school-age professionals learn qualities of a caring community, how to analyze the youth in their care to determine character strengths, and how to bring out nurturing, caring behaviors in children to create a community where children support each other.

The workshop is 7-9 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 22, in the Garnett office of the Frontier Extension District, 411 S. Oak St. Registration fee is $5 and can be paid at the workshop.

Advance registration is requested; register by calling any of the Frontier Extension District offices; Garnett, 785-448-6826; Lyndon, 785-828-4428; or Ottawa, 785-229-3520.

The workshop is approved for two in-service clock hours by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. For more information, contact Rebecca McFarland at the Ottawa Frontier Extension office at 785-229-3520.
