300 educators attend Resilient Child conferences
Over 300 educators from greater New York City attended the The Resilient Child: Strategies for Social-Emotional Well-Being Conferences in Westchester and Long Island. Educators gathered at Beth El Synagogue Center in New Rochelle on March 26 and at Temple Beth Sholom in Roslyn Heights on March 28.
The keynote speaker at both conferences was Noah Hichenberg, director of the Saul and Carole Zabar nursery school at the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan and a 2015 recipient of the Young Pioneers Award. Seventeen speakers presented at the two conferences on topics ranging from gender and sexuality development in young children to helping children become competent problem solvers.
"This was the best conference yet," said one early childhood director after the Westchester conference.
"Our staff enjoyed the workshops and found them quite informative. The keynote speaker was fantastic," a Long Island early childhood director said after the Long Island conference.
