HANCEVILLE, Ala. — Educators, child care workers and even parents or guardians who want to find entertaining ways to teach children will benefit from a free workshop to be offered at Wallace State Community College.

The college’s Child Development program has partnered with Child Care Central to offer “Learning Games: Exploring the Senses Through Play” on Monday, Nov. 3, from 6 to 8 p.m., in room 409 of the Tom Bevill Health Center. This is the first in upcoming workshops to be offered.

“The workshops are open to educators, caregivers, parents or anyone interested in helping children learn,” said Marcie Hill, director of Wallace State’s Child Development program. “This is also a great opportunity to earn hours for professional development.”

For this first workshop, the training will explore learning games that will delight children as they expand their learning by engaging all of their senses. The workshop will look at activities for each of the five senses, along with a few multi-sensory activities to help children build the tools needed for understanding the world.

To enroll in the workshop, call 256.551.7016 or email cccregistration@att.net. For more information about Wallace State’s Child Development program, contact Hill at 256.352.8383 or marcie.hill@wallacestate.edu.
