This is a special 10-hour professional development class. To view the promotional flyer for our special session series, 10 hour workshops SPRING 2018.

If you have an unlimited budget for curriculum materials, this is not the workshop for you.  If you are like the rest of us, come on over and we will show you how to collect and create dramatic play materials (pretend food, costumes, and more) using your recycling bin and simple craft supplies!   This is a MAKE-N-TAKE, so bring your best scissors and plan on making 3 or 4 materials that your children will be able to use on Monday!

Special Co-Presenter: Jessica Martinez

A pizza and salad lunch will be provided at no additional cost. If you have specific dietary or allergen concerns, please bring your own lunch!

Each Saturday Seminar will include 6 hours of instructor-led and 4 hours of self-study for a total of 10 clock hours.
