We have several virtual child care provider workshops coming up this winter! Learn some fun and easy ways to introduce math and writing concepts to preschoolers that you can use in your classroom.
Participants earn continuing education credit hours. Registration is free and must be done online with a Henrico County Public Library card. Please note that each provider must register with their own library card. If you do not have a card, please apply with your photo ID at one of our branches.
Childcare Workshop: Using Math Concepts in Storytime and Circletime
Saturday, December 12, 2:00 pm
Early numeracy often gets overshadowed by literacy. Learn practical ways to incorporate math concepts into circle time with books, activities, and games for toddlers and preschoolers. We will explore foundational math concepts beyond numbers and counting, including spatial awareness, measurement, geometry, data collection, interpretation and more. Registration opens Nov. 12.
Pre-Writing Activities for Young Children
Tuesday, January 12, 6:00 pm
Early literacy is about more than just learning to read. This workshop will explore the early literacy practice of writing. Join us to discover activities for young children that will develop pre-writing skills, helping them get ready for kindergarten. Registration opens Dec. 12.
