UW-RF Workshop Helps Understand Toddlers

If men are from Mars and women are from Venus, what planet is your toddler from? Parents can improve their understanding of a young child by attending a child development workshop at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls campus on Saturday, March 27, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Child-care trainers and early childhood development professors will provide insights to and facilitate discussion among parents of young children, early-grade teachers, child-care providers, and college students at this special opportunity.

The workshop, "It's All About Development," will cover a wide range of early development issues for all children including those with special needs. The College of Education and Professional Studies is offering the workshop with the support of the River Falls and Hudson School Districts.

Those who attend must make a reservation and choose either the parent or educator track. The $45 fee includes admission, lunch, parking, and child-care services for their children, if needed.

Participants must register in advance by completing a registration form provided by the UW-RF Outreach and Graduate Studies Office. For more information, call 715/425-3256 or 800-228-5607 or send an e-mail to outreach@uwrf.edu.
