Summer Training for Froebel Education Center Teachers
Grand Rapids, MI

Below is the schedule for the weeks in July. If you are a teacher/parent and interested in the training, we can provide child care in the afternoon for your child. If your child(ren) are coming for the morning sessions, each child will need to bring a sack lunch. You can pick up your child between 12:30 and 12:45 each day. Please be aware that these sessions are geared toward children of pre-school - 1st or 2nd grade age. We cannot accommodate children under 2 without parent supervision. Of course, all parents are encouraged to stay and participate with the children, but are not required to if the child is over 3.

The cost for the entire month is $350.00. This includes both morning and afternoon sessions and the required readings. Readings will be handed out at the adult meeting on July 8. If you are paying by the day, it is $35 for a full day. Adult sessions are held Monday - Thursday. There are no sessions on Friday afternoon.

The cost for the morning sessions would be $17.50 per day and a morning snack is included. We will need to know a week in advance what days you and/or your child will be attending. Payment is due at the beginning of each week. If you pay in advance for days/weeks, you will receive a confirmation email. If you choose to pay on the first day of that week for the days you will be attending, you will receive a receipt from one of us.
