What can school-age programs do to respond to these challenges? What do we know about school-age child development in terms of communication, and what materials and activities can be offered that will build upon this knowledge? Todd’s interactive keynote address will address these questions and more.  Workshops: Addressing Difficult Issues with Parents, Let me Move: Best Practices for After School, Child Abuse Identification and Prevention, For Directors Only: Building an Effective Team, Show Me the Money: Financial Education for Children.   Register online at www.childcarewestchester.org/pdf/2014_School_Age_Conference_Registration_Form.pdf.  For more information, contact Dana Doyle at DanaD@cccwny.org or (914) 761-3456 x113.
