Preparing Your Child For School Success

Do you have a child in preschool or kindergarten, and want to start off their school career on the best foot possible?

This workshop will introduce you to the skills that children need to thrive in school, so that you can get a head start and make sure they get a great education.

Workshop Topics:

  • Developing social and emotional intelligence
  • Nurturing confidence and curiosity
  • Teaching self-control
  • Effective communication
  • Cooperating and relating with others

What is the program like?

This is an interactive workshop, where you’ll be working with other parents and caregivers as well as the workshop leader. The course is based on the material prepared by Pam Schiller, entitled Seven Skills for School Success. You’ll learn hands-on ways to help kids absorb a skill from many angles.

Marlene Taylor, MPS,
I am the Education and Training Coordinator at MHA. I teach numerous parenting classes on special topics which help parents and caregivers to better understand and manage behavior challenges for children and teenagers. I also coordinate staff trainings that range from community programs and resources to special topics such as Trauma Informed Care and Narcan training. I love teaching and having the opportunity to bring inspiring and enlightening information to the community and staff. I truly believe information is power.
