Early Childhood Virtual Keynote Topics
See a few of the possible topics for my motivational keynotes
An effective Keynote should motivate people to accomplish something that will improve the lives of young children. It should be interesting, filled with new ideas, and sprinkled with humor. Participants should enjoy the Keynote as well as learn something important.
Taking these requirements into consideration, I have created several Keynotes that might meet your specific needs. Remember, though, that any Keynote can be custom tailored to accomplish specific goals or touch on certain topics that are important to your group so sessions will be meaningful and helpful to participants.
During the past year we have experienced an extraordinary time filled with challenges, turmoil, and uncertainty. This keynote is a tribute to all early childhood educators and caregivers who tirelessly dedicate their lives to focus on young children and their families in the midst of pandemic. These amazing people: build personal relationships with young children who are about to navigate the world; listen, respond, and communicate intentionally and attentively; design and maintain a calm and stimulating environment for learning; and nurture curious and creative children to build their confidence to solve problems.
These excellent teachers and caregivers contribute as facilitators for young children to find their “light.” We will investigate how quality early experiences impact children’s development and their future. Together let us celebrate the amazing mentorship and discover how young children learn with them!
The young children in your classroom today are living in a very different world. It is filled with new challenges, advanced technology, innovative jobs, and expanded responsibilities that we have never heard of today. How can we help and prepare children for these new challenges, expanded opportunities, and innovative ways of solving problems? Explore how to enhance your environment, inspire children’s unique ideas, and value their amazing creations. Both you and your children will benefit from the enriched possibilities that will occur when you integrate the 4C’s into your fabulous classroom.
Young children are active learners who need meaningful, play opportunities to gain understanding of their world. However, many current studies indicate that young children are spending less time in play and suffering with negative consequences labeled as “play deficit.” Examine how play experiences provide opportunities for social-emotional expression, making choices, have interactive conversations, and learn to work with others. Investigate how language, collaboration, persistence, and empathy are developed as young children participate in engaged play. Discover how playing with ideas and materials can nurture creative thinkers and problem solvers. Explore play environments that provide intriguing possibilities that support and challenge young children’s growing capabilities.
We have focused on Literacy, STEAM, and abilities that can be tested to measure learning. Now it is time to put all the pieces back together and focus on integrating these areas into early childhood programs and adding the missing components including: focused conversations, “active” way of learning, small groups, physical activity, and the Arts. Discover how an early childhood program can consider the entire child and individual strengths, while supporting young children’s way of learning. This holistic learning environment will provide a strong foundation for young children’s learning, encourage their development, and enhance their opportunity for progress.
When we work with young children, there are many instances that make us laugh and bring us joy. These special moments can provide a stress break, a shared fun moment, and build positive relationships. These happenings can also help us understand children’s development, how they think, and what they find amusing. Join in the fun while learning about the amazing abilities of young children. Let’s celebrate the humor and the positive interactions with them!
