Children love stories. But did you know that reading to young children not only increases their academic skills, but teaches them skills they need to be successful in life? When coupled with planned activities, stories help develop their social and emotional competence, strengthen their relationship with the storyteller, teach healthy coping skills, minimize the impact of trauma, provide the opportunities to learn how to manage feelings in a healthy way and provide the foundation for children to face life’s ongoing challenges with confidence and skill. In short, Storytime helps build resilience.
What you will get from this training: The knowledge and skills to enable you to train a wide population of parents and professionals who work with children, a complete curriculum with suggested stories and activities, numerous handouts and materials for parents, and a comprehensive list of books selected to build resilience skills.
We will post the next Storytime training schedule as it becomes available.
