Thanks to a grant from the Health Foundation for Western & Central New York, the Madison County Health Department is offering a free Pyramid Model training for providers working with Madison County children birth to age 5 years. The training costs, including lunch, will be fully covered by the grant, so there will be no cost to participants. The flyer below lists the dates and times of each training session, which will be provided by Madison-Oneida BOCES and the Child Care Council of CCE.
The Pyramid Model, also called the Center on the Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning, is a conceptual framework of evidence-based practices for promoting young children’s social and emotional competence and for preventing and addressing challenging behavior. The Pyramid Model is New York State’s preferred social-emotional curriculum for early education settings. More information may be found here: https://challengingbehavior.cbcs.usf.edu.
A description of what will be covered in each module may be found here: https://www.madisoncounty.ny.gov/DocumentCenter/View/10311/Pyramid-Model-Training-Modules. Participants should complete the modules in sequence. For example, Module 2 should not be taken until Module 1 is completed. Module 3 should not be taken until Modules 1 & 2 are completed. This is an excellent opportunity to complete the full series at no cost, or to finish the Pyramid Model trainings if some modules have been previously completed.
The training is limited to 20 participants for each training module, so be sure to register early by contacting Luann Hollingsworth at Madison-Oneida BOCES at firstname.lastname@example.org or 315-361-5902.
