The Early Childhood Committee of the Scott County Community Foundation and United Way of Scott County invites all early childhood providers and educators to attend a roundtable session on “Downloading Calm in a World of Chaos.” The event will feature guest speaker Amanda Taylor, Family Engagement Specialist with 4C of Southern Indiana (the child care resource and referral agency for 28 counties in southern Indiana).

In this training you will learn additional strategies to help support social emotional regulation: these new skill sets and knowledge will help you as an individual and will help you model these skill sets in a professional setting or at home with your family. Downloading Calm in a World of Chaos provides easy to use strategies that can be used and implemented anywhere, helping you get through life’s many twists and turns.

This session will be held Thursday, January 30 from 4-5 p.m. at the Lifelong Learning Center. Refreshments will be served, and the session is free.

Amanda’s passion and primary focus is empowering and supporting families, having spent the last ten years serving children in a variety of capacities within the early childhood field (EHS Home Visitor, Family Engagement Specialist, Behavior interventionist, Counselor, Crisis De-escalator, and Student Support Facilitator for a school district) as she moved around the country (IN, TX, MT, IL, CA, NM, etc.) with her military husband. She has her master’s degree from Ball State University in education and was born and raised in southern Indiana.

The early childhood provider roundtables give educators the opportunity to learn and network with others. Registration for this event can be made by calling 812-752-2057 or emailing info@scottcountyfoundation.org.
