MPB Preschool Teacher Training Workshops
MPB’s Early Childhood Team facilitates workshops for Pre-K and Kindergarten teachers using PBS research-based content and MPB resources. The age-appropriate materials and activities assist teachers in the classroom and work well with their current curriculum.
The workshops are informative and fun. During each workshop there are demonstrations, activities, open discussions and many strategies and ideas are shared. Each workshop is unique and includes an introduction (or review) of books and PBS KIDS programs that help to make teaching fun and engaging for early learning.
Workshops are scheduled on selected Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon and held at MPB. Due to COVID-19, workshops are being offered virtually until further notice. Lunch is typically served after each in-person workshop and all participants walk away with books and other classroom resources.
In addition to these scheduled workshops, upon request, we will design a needs-based workshop especially for your center or group of teachers. There must be a minimum of ten teachers to be trained.
