The Schoenbaum Family Center offers professional development opportunities to help educators, practitioners, community members and families support young children through early childhood research and practice. Many of these opportunities stem from the combined expertise of Crane Center researchers, Ohio State faculty and A. Sophie Roger’s School for Early Learning teachers.
SFC professional development opportunities include:
Training workshops for early childhood educators on topics such as language-rich classrooms, educating dual language learners, Read it Again Pre-K curriculum, Reggio Emilia Approach to Education, early childhood environments, family partnerships and cultural competence are offered monthly at the Schoenbaum Family Center. These workshops are Ohio Approved to ensure training quality and to meet SUTQ professional development requirements for early childhood educators. Practitioner Workshops are held at SFC or can be facilitated at other locations.
