River Falls Public Library Meeting Room 140 Union St. 54022

Exploration and play for children is supported by the environment. Learn to provide opportunities for children to explore and apply new skills. Learn how children gain the most benefit from playful learning experiences when materials and positive relationships are at the foundation of teaching.

modeled after the Environment Rating Scales.

Environments point in YoungStar.

The cost of this training is $20 and you will receive 3 registry credits.
