Fall Early Literacy Summit: Promoting the Social and Emotional Development of Young Children

This full-day conference will provide teachers of three-year-olds to kindergarten with specific research-based activities to support young children’s social and emotional development. 

Join us for this full-day summit where mentors and staff from Rice’s School Literacy and Culture program will present breakout sessions on supporting children’s socio-emotional development through dramatic play, quality children’s literature, process art, blocks and sensory play. Facilitators from the international nonprofit Save the Children will lead “Caregivers’ Journey of Hope” sessions where teachers learn more about adult reactions to stress, self-care techniques and how to create communities that promote emotional health. 

All participants will receive resources and classroom materials valued at $150 to help them create safe spaces for children’s voices to be heard.
