This predictable daily sequence of events gives children a sense of control and a feeling of confidence. 12/18, Caregiver Interactions: Participants will learn techniques to enhance caregiver-child interactions. 01/08, Infant Milestones: In this training, the participants will learn the developmental milestones of the first year of life, why infants are called sensory motor learners, and strategies for building trusting relationships with infants. 02/26, Baby Basic: This training will focus on basic infant care and licensing rules. Adult-child interaction will be demonstrated when tending to infant care needs. 03/25, Conflict Resolution Temperament and Learning: In this training, participants will learn strategies for using conflict situations to help develop important social skills, as well as methods of using natural or logical consequences as alternatives to punishment and to set limits. 04/22, Conflict Resolution Strategies for Problem Solving: In this training, participants will learn advanced techniques of the conflict resolution process, how to recognize a child's feelings in conflict situations, and an important six-step process to help children resolve conflicts on their own.
