Boys in the Preschool Classroom: Supporting & Engaging Them With Pam Pace – Education Specialist, CCRI Monday, March 20 & Tuesday, March 21 6:15 – 8:45pm both days .5 CEUs or 5.0 CHCs total Cost:  $25.00  Boys, especially high energy and boys of color, continue to be expelled from pre-kindergarten programs across the U.S. One study suggests that “boys are treated like defective girls” implying that boys’ slower developmental rates, physical response styles and kinetic learning behaviors are seen as deficits and teachers wish them to be firmly and swiftly “corrected”. In this high energy session, we will discuss common issues teachers identify concerning boys and suggest ways that teachers can create a learning environment that supports and engages boys (as well as girls).   *Directors* – You can attend ANY training for free if one or more of your staff attends the same training. Contact us at [email protected] or 828.407.2066 for more information! FAQs Is my registration transferable? Things happen! If for some reason you are unable to attend this training after you have registered, you may send someone in your place! Just be sure to let us know ([email protected]). What is the refund policy? Unfortunately, we do not offer refunds for trainings, unless Buncombe Partnership for Children cancels the event. Instead, we do offer ‘credits’ that can be applied to future trainings you wish to attend. To receive credits for future training you must cancel at least 24 hours in advance. You are responsible for contacting us should you wish you transfer your credit to another training. Can I pay with cash or check? If your organization must pay by check, please contact Stacy Lutz-Ovies at 828.407.2066 or [email protected] All checks are due 72 hours in advance unless otherwise agreed upon. If we do not receive payment 72 hours in advance we will open up those seats for other registrants. Unfortunately, we cannot accept cash. If you do not have a credit card or feel uncomfortable using a credit card online, consider asking a friend to register you and giving them cash.
