Training and Education

 

Classroom Training

Well-trained early childhood professionals are able to give children the best possible guidance and care. How do you respond to an angry child? What do you need to know to help a choking infant? What methods can you use to observe and track child progress? Over 1,000 trainings a year at Think Small will give you the training you need to answer questions like these. Trainings are held at Think Small as well as locations around the 7-county Metro Area. Trainings are available in English, Hmong, Somali, and Spanish.

Think Small trainings are available to view and register for at DevelopToolMN.org.
