Positive Discipline for Early Childhood Educators

This two-day interactive workshop is designed for early childhood educators, teachers, and caregivers who work with children from birth to six years of age. Participants will learn research-based principles and tools of Positive Discipline and how to apply them in an early childhood classroom or care setting.
