In this session, participants will learn about creating learning experiences that meet the needs of mixed-age groups in family child care settings. Through discussion and activities, participants will explore the role of the adult and child in learning, the different types of learning experiences, and how to plan developmentally appropriate experiences for all children in a mixed-age group.
Free Parking is available in the Jefferson Ave. Center parking lot at the SW corner of Long St. and Jefferson Ave. Please print parking pass available on the Action for Children website (click on “Parking” in “About” section).

Disability parking is located next to the back door of our building.
