Early childhood educators have always been Superheroes,

tasked with the single most important role, aside from parents, in a child’s early development and education. Your work is one of the most rewarding in education, one most of us cherish, but one that also brings great stress. There is a lot of pressure squarely on you. The impact that stress and anxiety have on educators and school directors and leaders takes a toll not only on your mental health and well-being but also on your ability to teach and our students’ ability to learn.

Long before this tumultuous time, early childhood educators were stretched to their limits, to the point of burnout. The experiences of the past two years have not only compounded the stressors in your lives but may have you considering leaving a profession you love. You need to have the tools of emotional intelligence so you can in fact be your best, grow personally and professionally and thrive in your role.

In this timely, empowering and interactive webinar Dr. Donna Housman and early childhood educator and trainer Emily Stone, discuss how imperative it is that we focus on emotional well-being in this moment and as a foundation for every early childhood learning environment. We will explore why this is so critical not only for your mental health and emotional well-being, but also for the children with whom you work.
