Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) | PLC
Apr 3 @ 5:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Childhood experiences, both positive and negative, have lifelong impacts and influence health and well-being later in life.  Come and learn from local experts about the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study (ACEs) that started the movement toward understanding the link between what happens early in life and later outcomes.  This training will help teachers and administrators set up positive experiences in their center in classrooms and support children showing challenging behaviors.

  • See those you work with through a different lens.
  • Reflect on how this information changes the way you interact with the
    children and adults in your classrooms.
  • Learn about caring for ourselves while providing trauma-informed care.
  • Explore next steps for our community.
