Mazal Tov to Osi Goldsand, our Kinderarts educator, who has received an award for the ELC from the ASaP program (Access, Support and Participation) through GRIT (Getting Ready for Inclusion Today). The ASaP Project focuses on social emotional learning in the classroom. It is designed to increase skills in early childhood educators by using evidence based professional practices to strengthen educators ability to: create high quality responsive environments, intentionally teach emotional development, and respond to challenging behaviors. We have been part of the project for 2 years and in that short time have reached DEMONSTRATION SITE STATUS. Other centers, teachers, or educators who are interested in learning more about social emotional support in the classroom are invited to come to our class, and talk to our educators to receive guidance and see what it’s all about.
