Informed Intentionality: A Back-to-School Webinar Series for Early Childhood Educators
It’s back-to-school season, and that means that educators and caregivers everywhere are busy preparing for the year ahead. The good news is that today’s teachers have access to more resources and more information than ever before. But all those choices can quickly become overwhelming.
Throughout this four-part webinar series, we will explore the concept of informed intentionality, because though intentionality is essential, it is not enough by itself to ensure the decisions you make will deliver the outcomes you desire.
Join us as we cut through the beginning-of-the-year noise to discuss how to be both informed and intentional. We will look at what’s essential in an early childhood classroom, what’s nice to include if time and resources allow, and what you don’t need to worry about at all.

Early childhood teachers love their classroom materials almost as much as children do. It’s the very “stuff” of active engagement. But not all classroom stuff is created equal.
In this webinar, we will address important questions about intentionally selecting and presenting classroom materials.
