Pre-Registration is required for each workshop, please contact your specific catchement area for more details.

Due to the interest in ongoing professional development, our workshops usually develop a waiting list. Please contact us if you need to cancel your slot, so that we can fill the space with another participant.  Due to the limited spaces per workshop, you can not transfer your registration to another person, so we can work off our waiting list; all we ask for is a phone call if you are not able to attend.

Child Care Resource and Referral can assist with translation services for Spanish speaking participants. If you need translation assistance, please contact Glenda West at 621-3512.

Please note child care is not available at our workshops.

When you do attend our workshops, please be respectful of other participants and arrive on time, leave cell phones off and be ready to learn and have fun!
