Save the Dates!!!!
October 7 & 8, 2016
Here at Child Central Station, we are happy to announce our first ever
PROVIDER PLAY DAY!
Ramada Inn, Marquette, Michigan
What is a Provider Play Day? It is a professional development event focused on play. Participants will study play, participate in play, and have some time to connect with each other! (You will also have an opportunity to visit and play at our program!)
We are still working on the final details of our event. The full schedule will be available soon. At this point, we know that there will be 12 hrs of training available if you attend the full conference and 8.5 if you only attend on Saturday. There is also the possibility that Continuing Education Credits will be available.
The schedule is jam packed with PLAY! You will have an opportunity to explore some research, visit Child Central Station, engage in hands-on play, discuss your own play journey, and spend some time reflecting on ways to “kick things up another notch” and advocate for children’s play!
This play day is open to all early childhood professionals, parents, and advocates are welcome to attend! Please dress in play clothes- we may get messy!
Registration is now available!!! Space is limited!
Full Conference- $115
Saturday Only – $90
The full conference will begin on Friday night at 5:30 pm and conclude at 4:30 on Saturday. The full conference will include 12 hours of training, Saturday will be 8 hours. (Additional hours up to 14 can be obtained by attending the pre and post event tours!) Dinner will be served on Friday night, and breakfast, snacks, and lunch are included on Saturday. (Additional hours are available for pre and post event tours! Please see the tentative schedule here).
