Child Inspired Presents...

Family-centered workshops provide education to childcare centers, preschools, health care providers, caregivers, and families on various aspects of child development and therapeutic practice. Scheduling of workshops can be flexible based on the hours of operation of the organization/center and/or the scheduling needs of working families. Evening hours are available. A single, 60-minute workshop can be scheduled with the Child Inspired team on a mutually-agreeable date, or a series of seasonal or themed workshops can be arranged as well. Workshops are approximately 60 minutes in length, and Child Inspired staff is happy to follow all Covid precautionary measurers set forth by the agency/location. If there is a topic of interest not listed below, please feel free to contact us to discuss further. If you are interested in hosting a Workshop or Workshop Series at your childcare center, preschool, agency, or organization, please contact Katie Burris at katie.burris@childinspiredtherapy.com to learn more.
