Professional Development Training

Professional Development that meets you where you are!

"During the Zoom there is a lot of information that is given. I really like the model
that Bekah gave on a few of the presentations and would suggest that the same method be used for all subscales."
~ERS Training Participant

Teaching young children is so rewarding but often we face many challenges along the way. Even with education in child development, adapting care for each individual child can be a bit of a mystery. As teachers, we are always looking to see what is 'typical development' and we work so hard to connect with the families we care for. Always juggling and not enough hours in the day to do everything before the end of your shift. If you're looking for answers to daily challenges in real-time, and some guidance to support you along the way, reach out for a consult or to just ask a question!

I have taken on a variety of roles in my career including teaching children ages infants to kindergarten, being a child care center director for more than a decade and supporting the Early Education field through quality development. From Family child care in a home setting to center based, corporate and non-profit, the challenges we face are often the same. For more than 20 years, I have guided children and families through challenges big and small.

I continue to support Early Childhood teachers as they navigate through the developmental stages that flow in childhood. I'm here to help each classroom in those challenging moments that are seen regularly. Tantrums, biting, sleep troubles, balancing individualized care, meeting each child's growth and challenging their development, emergency planning and more!! As providers, there are so many questions that we work through meeting each family's need. And each of the children are different! So, we may find that we face a new challenge with changing times that we haven't seen before!
