Online Program for Professionals

Building Early Emotional Skills (BEES) for Early Childhood professionals is an opportunity to learn more about how children develop important social emotional skills, and how you can help them learn to understand and express their emotions appropriately. We will talk about dealing with your stress as a caregiver and handling tantrums, biting and other troublesome behaviors of young children. We will learn about the important role you play in helping young children feel safe and secure as they learn to navigate their strong emotions.

BEES is a MiRegistry approved training. Digital course materials are provided at no cost. A certificate for 8 hours of training is available upon successful course completion.

This free online course is offered three times each year in the Fall, Winter and Spring.
