Early Childhood Education 2020 virtual training series has begun


The Guam Department of Education (GDOE) Division of Curriculum & Instruction in conjunction with the Pacific Resources for Educational Learning (PREL) Pacific Regional Comprehensive Center (PRCC) is hosting a four-day two-hour virtual professional learning experience on “Social and Emotional Development: Conscious Discipline” this week.

Conscious Discipline Educational Consultant Amy Speidel will be the main facilitator and will address topics ranging from brain research and social and emotional development to trauma strategies and working with young children. The training aims to assist educators with social and emotional wellness strategies in preparation for the reopening of schools.

The four-day virtual training session began Tuesday and will run through Friday, July 17th  from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Each day will target a specialized Early Childhood Program group.

The training is intended as a follow-up for those participants who attended the Social & Emotional Development training in May 2020. It will provide early childhood educators with skills and strategies to successfully address the social and emotional wellness needs of children during their first eight years of life.
