This can be achieved by incorporating the storyline and characters into the learning materials, fostering the child's imagination. This workshop will provide early childhood educators with activities and resources related to a variety of books used in early childhood learning environments.

- Science Activities for Learning: Oct. 19, 9 a.m. to noon - This session will address the need for incorporating science into the childcare environment. The world is based on science and technology.
