Bright Start Right Start I and II for Early Childhood Educators
BRIGHT START RIGHT START® is an intensive program developed to help early childhood educators implement engaging learning experiences in which young learners explore science in their world. Created in 2004 during a collaborative partnership between American Electric Power and TLC, over 200 early childhood educators have now attended the Bright Start Right Start course. This multi-day summer program provides hands-on experiences and activities that early childhood educators can use in their classroom to fuel a child’s fascination and wonder, and help develop a foundation for later success in K-12 science learning. The Columbus, Ohio site session will be held July 31-Aug 3, 2012. Download the registration form here.
If you have previously taken Bright Start Right Start I, we are piloting Bright Start Right Start II, a follow-up session July 23-25, 2012 in Columbus, Ohio. Download additional information here.
