Beyond Nice: Nurturing Kindness in Young Children
Updated: Mar 28, 2019
Book by Stuart Stotts
*2 Hours of Continuing Education
At our January 2019 Winter Staff Retreat we welcomed Stuart Stotts as our keynote speaker. Stuart shared tons of great ideas and inspiring stories with us as we reflected on our role as teachers of young children. Stuart wrote a book named "Beyond Nice" that we talked about following Stuart's keynote address and we shared ideas on how we can nurture KINDNESS in the children in our classroom, and in our program as a whole. Everyone at the retreat was given a copy of this book to take home.
Apple Ridge created a reflection "worksheet" for those interested in diving in further and pursuing the ideas presented in Beyond Nice. This is a great tool to help you create a plan for implementation of ways that you can begin to (or continue to) nurture kindness with the children in your classroom every day.
You may earn 2 hours of continuing ed for reading the book "Beyond Nice" and then completing the below reflection piece.
If you do not have your own copy of the book, you are welcome to borrow one from the office or you may purchase your own copy on Amazon by clicking here. You may also find printed copies of the reflection piece in the office as well.
