Building Resilience in Early Care

Children are dealing with more stress than ever before, and research continues to show the significant impact that stress has on their emotional wellness. Even little ones can become overwhelmed with big emotions and they need our help learning how to cope. Strong4Life recognizes that early childhood professionals play a crucial role in setting a lifelong foundation for emotional development and resilience through responsive caregiving. The Strong4Life resilience training is designed to support early childhood professionals in fostering resilience in children starting at birth. We currently offer resilience training to outpatient pediatric primary care practices, schools, and other community partners.

The Strong4Life resilience training aims to:

  • Normalize conversations about feelings.
  • Provide education about supporting emotional development.
  • Teach skills to help children identify, express, and manage feelings.

Why participate in the Resilience Training?

  • Learn strategies to promote emotional development and build resilience in all young children
  • Gain information about free, virtual resources for families and staff available on
  • Earn Bright from the Start continuing education credit (1 credit hour)

Georgia early childhood professionals who provide care to children from birth to 5 years of age, including (but not limited to) early care centers directors, assistant directors, teachers, and supportive staff, are invited to take the training.

In light of COVID-19, all Strong4Life training events will be hosted via Webex until further notice. New training dates and times will be added each month at the registration link below.
