Leah Woodbury By: Leah Woodbury

From simplifying enrollment and registration to transforming a daycare into a true early childhood education center, the top five Procare Solutions webinars of 2023 spanned topics that you care about!

Let’s take a closer look at these webinars, in no particular order:

1. More than a Daycare – Becoming an Early Childhood Education Center

View the on-demand webinar to hear from AJ Crabill, an education reform advocate whose experience includes working with government education agencies as well as chairing the school board in Kansas City, Mo., and from curriculum experts from Learning Beyond Paper.

He will talk about his experience with the need for high-quality early education that should begin before a child is born.

And with parents returning to the office, more and more children are being enrolled in daycare programs. That means child care centers are serving as places to help young children build a foundation for early learning. These programs should provide a high-quality early childhood education that can positively impact a child’s social skills, development milestones, educational achievement, health and bright future.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How effective vs. ineffective curriculum can impact children
  • The difference between a digital curriculum and a paper-based curriculum
  • A digital curriculum that can support teachers in real time and save hours of time
  • And more!
