The Buena Vista Public Library, is pairing up with Kate Brunner, an Early Literacy Librarian at the Colorado State Library to host a series of three workshops to promote early learning in young children (ages 0-5).  The series is designed especially for the network of friends, family, neighbors, and parents who help support the care of a young child.

The weekly Zoom workshops are live and interactive, providing opportunities for participants to:

  • connect with each other
  • develop a deeper understanding of how the things they are already doing contribute to the child’s development
  • reflect on the value of their existing interactions, and engage with new tools and skills that support school readiness, such as early literacy and STEM programming for young children.

In addition to the workshops, participants will receive a weekly take home kit that includes popular activities for caregivers so they can immediately practice what they have learned with the children in their care.

We are offering this virtual workshop series FREE of charge for a limited number of caregivers* in March.  We ask that anyone registering does so with the intention to attend all three sessions.  Dates and times for the workshops are below.  REGISTER HERE to save your spot!
