Kimochis® Orientation and Training (Virtual Watch Party) February/March 2024

Event Phone: 780-429-4787

Kimochi is a noun meaning ‘feeling’, ‘mind’, and ‘heart’, in Japanese.

Our 6 video Watch Party sessions introduce you to the Kimochis® tools to support children in exploring and managing their feelings. Join us in watching & discussing videos made by Kimochis Curriculum Creator Ellen Dodge especially for AHVNA’s ECE training.

Research has shown that a focus on developing five core Social-Emotional Competencies provides positive outcomes for children. This training will be valuable for Educators as they support children through big feelings and engage families with practical activities which can be implemented at home. The training is free to ECEs working within licensed day homes and daycares in Alberta that are members of AHVNA.

Facilitated by AHVNA and Kimochis® curriculum. 

In order to register, Agency or individual must be a member of AHVNA; one membership of $100 allows for ALL Early Childhood Educators within that agency to register for any AHVNA ECE Trainings
