Supporting Early Educators’ Mental Health During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Monday, March 23 • 6:30PM - 7:30PM
Featuring Nefertiti Bruce Poyner, M.Ed.

During this stressful time, we know that so many of Ohio’s early educators have continued providing nurturing, quality care for our youngest children and support for their families. We’ve hosted several informational webinars over the past several days geared toward center and family child care owners, directors, and administrators. On Monday, we want to take some time to provide support to the early education community as a whole—including teachers—and share strategies for supporting your mental health during this time.

At 6:30 PM on Monday, March 23rd, Groundwork Ohio, Ohio AEYC, and Southwest Ohio AEYC will be hosting a webinar featuring an early childhood field favorite, Nefertiti Bruce Poyner, M.Ed.

We hope you will share this opportunity with your network and encourage them to participate!
