Saturday Of Service – Parent Education Seminar March 2011

For the second year the club hosted its Parent Education Seminar on March 19th, 2011.   Positive feedback and a demand for the continuation of the programme prompted co-ordinator Marion Dass, member and educator to formulate a follow-up programme.  The focus this year was on

  • Special Education - The  Twice Exceptional
  • Discipline &  Guidance  Procedures
  • Critical thinking in Young Children

Young children need developmentally appropriate and nurturing responses from parents and teachers that will develop skills and behaviors, prevent more serious problems, repair problematic relationships, and help them develop the social-emotional skills they need to succeed in life.

Approximately 100 parents, teachers, and interested persons attended.  A new group of attendees included fathers and grandfathers.  Printed material prepared by the club, and the presenters was available for distribution
