JCA to host early childhood education symposium

The Jewish Community Alliance will host its 4th Annual Early Childhood Education Symposium at the San Jose center Oct. 16.
The symposium aims to help adults “take a step back and see ‘Through a Child’s Eyes'” to “better provide the materials, activities and intentional teaching needed to foster children’s learning as well as better understand their behaviors and actions.”
Keynote speaker and developmental psychologist Cindy Rzasa Bess, Ph.D., will discuss “I’m Not Being Difficult, I’m Being Me!” on Tuesday, Oct. 16.
Parents and educators from Northeast Florida will come together from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. for the JCA’s 4th annual early childhood symposium and enjoy breakout sessions on positivism, respect, and kindness; creating science spaces; bullying; and effective storytelling.
Tickets are $30 per person and $40 per person after Oct. 11. A kosher dinner will be served, and Jewish educators can attend for a special reduced rate.
For more information, call Rochelle Golomb at 730-2100 ext. 259.
Looking ahead, the JCA will further enlighten local parents on the experiences of children with the Feb. 21 visit of New York Times bestselling author, Madeline Levine. She will discuss her books, “Teach Your Children Well” and “The Price of Privilege.”
