As someone who reaches FFNs, you’re in a unique position to support thriving caregiver relationships and settings. The Guide for Trainers shows you how to create six workshops using printables, videos, and interactives from the Caring for Kids topic area. The Guide will help you promote the following ideas:
- Caregivers can have a lasting impact as they nurture and care for little ones.
- When children’s parents and caregivers are at ease, children can feel safe to explore and learn. FFNs can build trusting relationships and good communication with families to make a strong childcare team.
- Simple strategies, such as setting up successful routines and multi-sensory activities, can help strengthen caregiver relationships with children as well as increase opportunities for learning.
