Why does my yaya always let my child watch TV? What can my yaya do with my child while they’re at home? How can I teach my yaya to provide my child with educational activities while I’m away? These are just some of the concerns that most parents have, especially those who are working full time. Caregivers play an important role in our child’s life. It’s essential that nannies or yayas are also educated and armed with knowledge on how to be effective in taking care of our most precious little ones. Tumble Tots is inviting your nanny to its Caregiver Workshop on July 30, 2010 (Friday) at 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Dubbed, “Yaya: Halina’t Magbasa,” the workshop will focus on teaching caregivers Creative Storytelling techniques for children. The forum will help the caregivers know the importance of story reading and be aware of how to select stories or books appropriate for young children. They will also be taught creative ways of telling stories, such as storytelling through art, music, & singing. This interactive workshop will surely arm your caregiver with the confidence to read to your child and provide him with educational activities at home. The forum will be facilitated by Prof. Isabel Sapala, M.A. of Miriam College. She specializes in Developmental Reading and Methods of Teaching Language. She is also a trainer and consultant to various organizations. Ms. Gladys Reyes-Sommereux, celebrity mom, actress, and TV host, will join the facilitator by giving input and feedback to the caregivers from a parent’s point of view.
