Each year, ITC teachers host an Infant Toddler Workshop Series for fellow early childhood educators. We're happy to announce this year's series!
This year’s series will focus on creating meaningful, responsive curriculum for infants and toddlers. As teachers, we often look to external inspirations for new and fun ideas to bring back to our classrooms and that can be rich and meaningful. But what if we take a step back and ask, what do infants and toddlers really need? Together we will delve into how we as teachers impact the work of children; whether it may be our environment, expectations, materials offered or time and space for children to engage in their own learning. Join us in discovering what is really going on during play and share how we can best support and offer purposeful, meaningful learning.
Open to early childhood educators. Sessions held monthly November 2017 - May 2018 from 7-9pm. Register online!
In the case of snow, session may be rescheduled for Thursday, May 24, 2018.
Training Certificates will be provided.
Thanks to all who participated in this Fall's Campus Clean Up Day - whether through your labor or donations of new supplies. Special thanks to our friends at SORRENTO'S for a generous pizza lunch to our crew and the numerous families who joined us for projects big and small. Our parking lot was overflowing with volunteers on Saturday morning who tackled clean up projects, raked piles upon piles of leaves, completed general repair tasks, and got campus readied for winter. We had dads on site at 8am with leaf blowers and weed whackers in hand to trim and clear out fence lines and pathways - and families working until 5pm to install custom roofing on our outdoor playhouse structures. As a team, we cleaned and organized every playground; trimmed and cleaned the entrance, exit, and throughout the main campus; cleared gutters; washed and organized toys; got spring and summer toys stored for winter; sanded and sealed over 15 pieces of wooden furniture; and built a greater sense of community. THANK YOU for your contribution to the ITC Community. It's the participation of families at events throughout the year that strengthen us. We look forward to having more fun again this Spring! Check out photos of before, during and after.

ITC believes children learn best when actively engaged - in play, language, science, and art. At ITC, children will enjoy indoor exploration in our beautiful farmhouse, while our private 3.5 acre site gives children daily interaction with nature and the outdoors. Each age group has a designated playground furnished with age-appropriate play possibilities, and opportunities to explore the surrounding conservation land. Our unique curriculum includes frequent nature walks, a music partnership with Indian Hill Music, our own vegetable garden for all ages, cooking, arts, and more!

Cloudy skies and a little rain didn't get in our way from accomplishing great things at Campus Clean Up Day. Thank you to everyone who participated in our Spring Campus Cleanup Day! Special thanks to our friends at SORRENTO'S for a generous pizza lunch to our crew and the numerous families who joined us for projects big and small. Over 50 volunteers gathered on Saturday morning to tackle clean up, mulching, adding fresh sand to boxes, and some general repair tasks left by Mother Nature this winter. As a team, we added fresh sand to every playground; mulched beds at the entrance, exit, and throughout the main campus; cleared gutters; washed and organized toys; and got all the spring and summer gear out for play days ahead. THANK YOU for your contribution to the ITC Community. We look forward to having more fun again this Fall! Check out photos of before, during and after.

This year our series will focus on the many roles that relationships play in our work. Connecting with parents, working with co-workers and working with infants and toddlers all require establishing and maintaining relationships with each other. As humans, we constantly seek affirming connection and a sense of belonging. This year we will look deeper into just how and why those connections impact our work with children, families, and each other in our center-based environments.Read More
