Preschool educators give talk about programs of Italy

July 6th, 2007

Hartnell College early childhood educators will present a slide show and talk on “A Taste of Italy,” on Tuesday, July 10, at 6:30 p.m. in room 125 of the Performing Arts Facility.

Child Development Center Director Linda Taylor and early childhood education instructor Ann Edgerton will talk about their tour of the early childhood programs in Pistoia and Reggio Emilia, Italy, this spring, once lauded by Newsweek magazine as the best in the world.

Everyone is invited to attend this program, which will end by 8:30 p.m. The evening should be especially interesting to preschool teachers, administrators of child care centers, family resources centers, and family child care homes, and others who are interested in early education systems.

The event is free and sponsored by Hartnell College, Monterey County Child Care Planning Council, and First 5 Monterey County.
