Virginia Frank Connections: Early Childhood Training Institute

Connections: Early Childhood Training Institute is a six-week summer program for early childhood teachers and professionals. The Institute was developed out of the Virginia Frank Child Development Center’s Relationship-Based Phase Model, which emphasizes the importance of building strong teacher and caregiver relationships with young children to promote a secure, healthy and productive learning environment. It has been concluded that having secure attachments with caregivers is the basis of optimal cognitive growth and development for young children.
