Local Initiatives for Educators

Our Neighborhood enjoys bringing professional development experiences to Charlottesville for early childhood educators. Our teachers are actively participating in reflective work and we love to share that practice with our community.

"...you are the one that has the power in the moment to moment decisions and responses you make to children. You decide what to pay attention to, what to stop, and what to emphasize and help grow. When you stay mindful and act with your values and goals in mind, you become a powerful mediator of children's learning."
