University of Missouri Extension hosts child care worker training

Updated:

Child care workers across jasper county are required to go through training credits in order to operate.
   
In Carthage today, many of those workers learn about a child's distinct concentration areas through presentations.

The University of Missouri Extension in Carthage held a training course for all those who work with kids from home day cares to schools.

Participants could get  credit towards licenses and certifications. Classes focused on 4 areas: Science for Young Thinkers, Art Appreciation 101 for Young Children, Sparking Kids' Curiosity, and What Does "Time" Mean to Children? 

Class creator, Dr. Jim Wirth says the topics covered are just a start to understand the constantly growing mind of a child...but it's also important to  for the adults.

"Anyone in child care, growth and development area can develop these topics, but they also need topics based on their professional lives and how they fit into the community. So it's not just the content on these kids, which is very important, a high priority, but also their own professional life and how to deliver the services, how to run their business." Dr. Wirth says.

The group hopes to hold additional seminars in the future. If you'd like to be added to the mailing list for upcoming events, or for more information, you can stop by
