Christ Episcopal School - Covington, LA
Hour 1: Guiding With Love
Social and emotional development is a foundational element of early childhood education. This session will focus on creating a healthy school family by making connections through relationships and loving guidance on an everyday basis. Participants will learn to create a positive school climate where intrinsic motivation, helpfulness, and connection guide the classroom with a “Tool Box” of ideas.
Hour 2: The Spiritual Child
The spiritual development of the child is an essential aspect of developing the whole child in Episcopal schools. Enriching the child’s inner being with a holistic approach to help each child to grow in their knowledge and love of God is fundamental in faith development and belief in the divinity. Participants will learn to emphasize and nurture the spiritual lives of young children through prayer, chapel service, song, the natural world, and connection with others.
