To enroll in a Growing Brain Training of Trainers course you must first prequalify to become a ZERO TO THREE Certified Trainer for The Growing Brain through the Learning Center.
This two-day event provides a comprehensive understanding of the new Growing Brain curriculum and what it means to be a Certified Trainer in this curriculum. Trainers will learn skills and evidence-informed strategies to prepare early childhood providers for their vital role in building healthy brains, including: teaching early childhood professionals about brain development architecture and neurobiology to inform their practice; supporting language, cognition, prosocial behavior, and social-emotional development; and reducing toxic stress that can negatively influence brain development of very young children.
Cost is $549 and includes provisional trainer certification, and ZERO TO THREE Membership for one year.
