From USD 470 – Ark City Public Schools: A total of 125 Cowley County early childhood professionals recently gathered for a joint Conscious Discipline training at Arkansas City High School.
The training was a collaborative effort spearheaded by Head Start, USD 470 Early Literacy Initiative, Winfield Early Learning Center, and Cowley County Special Services Cooperative with the goal of creating common professional development opportunities and a shared knowledge base for those who work with children ages birth through kindergarten within the county.
Conscious Discipline is a trauma-informed, research-based program that “transforms everyday discipline issues into teachable moments, equipping children with the skills needed to manage themselves, resolve conflict, and develop healthy behavior.”
