"I appreciated all of the practice it provided the participants, rather than leaving them on their own to practice and troubleshoot after the training."
"I love how we are able to have the opportunity to meet and discuss our different observations and how to implement that into the day using out PITC tools. I especially enjoyed how we can utilize the tool as a reflection to implement at home with parents. Not just our daily environment, interactions, and routines but to expand the learning even at home."
"Great training. I have worked in the infant toddler field for over 20 years, and this training taught me new ideas and strategies for curriculum planning."
"Es un currículo ideal para llevar acabo en los programas porque es sensible ante las necesidades e intereses de los ninos."
"De muchas maneras, el material obtenido en las sesiones será de mucho apoyo para seguir creando planes y apoyar a los niños de manera tanto individual como grupal."
"Es un currículo que nos ayuda a trabajar con los niños usando nuevas estrategias."
