Mother Goose-Early Literacy and Social-Emotional Development
Mondays, March 1st & 8th (6:00 – 9:00 pm), First Baptist Church, 601 Main Street, Bennington

Pausing to listen to an airplane in the sky, stooping to watch a ladybug on a plant, sitting on a rock to watch the waves crash over the quayside – children have their own agendas and timescales. As they find out more about their world and their place in it, they work hard not to let adults hurry them. We need to hear their voices.
– Cathy Nutbrown

Supporting Children of Incarcerated Parents
Saturday, March 5th (10 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.), The Federated Church of East Arlington,  102 Ice Pond Rd., East Arlington
Children of incarcerated parents are in many child care programs and school districts in America.  Nationally, one child in 28 has an incarcerated parent; in Vermont that number is much higher—one in 17.  Over the course of a year, 6,000 children in Vermont experience parental incarceration; they go to bed at night missing their mom or dad in prison.  Sometimes these children are known to their teachers, caregivers and counselors; more often they are not.

Notably most schools, child care programs, and social service agencies do not have resources specifically designed to address the concerns of children with an incarcerated parent.  Sadly, when parents serve time, so do their children.  Too often, the support necessary to reduce the harmful and life-long effects of parental incarceration is lacking.

This training will provide staff in child care and educational settings with information and activities designed to increase their capacity to respond to the needs of these children, their caregivers, and their incarcerated parents.  Participants will be empowered to build a supportive climate in their classrooms to help children process grief, release shame, establish caring relationships, and build healthy self-esteem.

The training will be facilitated by Tricia Long, MA, Director for Resilience Beyond Incarceration, a program of the Lamoille Restorative Center, in Hyde Park, VT.  Tricia, a licensed clinical mental health counselor, has over 25 years experience with expertise in complex developmental trauma, disrupted attachment, grieving, and resilience.

This session is being sponsored by the Northshire Starting Points Network and SUNRISE/BCCCA.  Please register on the form included in this newsletter.  Early childhood and schoolage caregivers and community partners are invited to participate.    Please register early to ensure your enrollment.  Lunch will be provided.  CDA:  2, 3, 4, 8.  Advanced Specialized Care training credit.
