JDAI introduces the award-winning entertainment based training program for preschool teachers, the Healthy Habits Champions online curriculum.
We're in the business of serving children. So, naturally, we're in the business of helping teachers reach their fullest potential. To us, professional development training should be a rich, eye-opening experience where formal lessons are supported by provocative real-life situations. It should develop and assess skills, but it should also inspire confidence and joy, because we all know that a confident and joyful teacher, equipped with a strong understanding of the subject matter, can positively impact dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of children and their families. That's quite an opportunity!
In order for teachers to get more out of online learning, the Institute raises the bar for the online learning experience. We believe that online learning can be effective when it captures the imagination of a participant. And when it’s effective, it has the potential to bring confidence and further competence of a learner. To change behavior, a training must be built to change behavior. Our method combines sound research with an entertainment-education approach to training -- an award-winning training that is compelling and comprehensive and that goes beyond facts and figures to help teachers cultivate necessary skills to develop healthy habits in children.
