Happy Independence Month!

This month our theme is brain development and trauma. New research has shown that trauma in the early years of a child have long lasting effects. The National Child Traumatic Stress Network has great resources, trainings, and information on how trauma affects both the child and families. Check out their website HERE. In recent years, we have also learned more about the brain and how it develops during the early childhood stages. The Center on the Developing Child is an awesome resource and research-based information to help us understand the brain and early childhood. Check out their website HERE..

We have great news to share!

We are now able to start doing in-person trainings and technical assistance. Please contact your R&R Specialist if you need training or technical assistance in your program. We also have a great Infant Toddler Specialist that can come help with issues in your Infant, Toddler, or Two’s classrooms.
