Improving Our Trauma Informed Practices
The Playing Field has been recognized across the state for our trauma informed practices.
Conscious Discipline Family Camp
The Playing Field received an anonymous gift to help with professional development costs. We were able to send several teachers for more Conscious Discipline training. We were also able to send Elyes and her daughter to the first Conscious Discipline Family Camp!
Elyes said The Playing Field is different from other programs her child has attended because the teachers focus on the child’s emotional state rather than on labeling behavior as “good” or “bad.”
Meet the Blue Horses
The Playing Field is hosting a kick off to a parent education series on Conscious Discipline. This training will provide all parents with usable strategies for managing child behaviors and supporting their child’s emotional development.
The first training will be held on Saturday, October 27th from 9:00 to 11:00. We invite you to attend and learn more about this program. There is no cost for this introductory session. If parents choose to continue, they will be asked to purchase a book and contribute towards child care costs if needed.
A grant of $2500 from the Capital Times Kids Fund will allow us to offer free books and child care to families in need. These funds will first be offered to parents of children enrolled at The Playing Field and they to parents from the community.
