Because LifeWays takes home as the model for mixed-age, relationship-based care, it's training program and workshops can nurture parents as well as transform childcare settings. If you are home with young children or work with them professionally, LifeWays programs can be the "next step" after reading First Teacher. They meet part-time in locations throughout the US and in Vancouver, BC and are attended by a mix of parents, childcare providers and early childhood teachers. LifeWays also offers a quarterly e-newsletter and other resources.
