Curriculum Trainings are offered on the Pre-Conference day, in the morning from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm CST and/or the afternoon from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm CST. These sessions require an additional registration fee and are designed for early childhood programs and districts that have purchased the Frog Street curriculum.

Participants will receive a certificate for continuing professional education credit for completion of the training. These trainings are for educators who are new to the Frog Street curriculum or those who need a refresher. These trainings will provide content specific to the curriculum and the effective use of its materials to ensure your new, comprehensive curriculum is being used with fidelity.
