Professional Development

Through interactive tours, team building activities and workshops, professional development sessions explore innovative ways to meet national, state and city performance standards. All are designed to enrich classroom or after-school environments, and support the development of 21st century skills and standards set by NYS’s Common Core Curriculum. Sessions will be of particular interest to professionals working with early childhood or school-aged children, as well as children with disabilities.
