Bringing Early Childhood Theory to Life

Mind in the Making

This advanced cohort balances active learning, reflective discussion, and out of classroom work to help you make meaningful connections between your work and major theories of development. This training uses the book, 'Theories of Childhood' by Carol Garhart Mooney. 

Toddler Playing

Based on the book Mind in the Making by Ellen Galinsky, this advanced cohort focus on
the seven essential life skills that every child needs to thrive. Each learning module
leads with science, combining deep research focused on executive function skills, with
signature science-fueled learning. The training provides opportunities for adults to
examine themselves, the research and the actions they can take to promote effective
learning in themselves and in children.

Our certified facilitators will lead participants through eight MITM learning modules that
examine child development principles identified in Ellen Galinsky’s groundbreaking
research. Designed to help bridge the gap between knowledge and practice, the MITM
training supports participants in creating practical action plans to promote brain
development and strengthen adult-child relationships.
