Collin County Association for the Education of Young Children
You can make early literacy feel like child’s play! Frisco Public Library is hosting a full day of free early learning workshops on August 13th from 9am-5pm. Local librarians and guests from across the country will lead seminars throughout the day. Parents, caregivers, and early learning professionals will learn how to make the most of everything from story time to nap time.
The Frisco Library is committed to early learning and is proud to provide free resources like this for the community. With this in mind, Youth Services Librarians will join a prestigious panel of experts in sharing techniques and resources designed to help the smallest learners achieve their biggest dreams. Attendees can earn up to six hours of Continuing Education Credit.
“We are thrilled that so many talented early learning professionals are coming to share their expertise,” says Early Literacy Librarian Bonnie Barber. “It will be a richly rewarding day for all who attend and benefit the children they care for.”
The day will start at 9am with a two hour session about the power of play, led by Marisa Conner of the Baltimore County Public Library, Storyville. Other topics covered include: STEM for young learners; ways to make story time memorable; and, how to enhance children’s oral language skills, as taught by Al Stewart of the Collin County Association for the Education of Young Children. A 3pm class focused on classroom management will be followed by open mic resource sharing from 4-5pm.
Come ready to learn and share your ideas and experiences. Refreshments will be served. This event is free and registration is not required. Find more information about presenters and topics covered at friscolibrary.com/earlyliteracyday.
