Cultivating Farm to Early Childhood (FTEC) is an opportunity for early educators to explore and expand personal and professional experience related to agriculture and nutrition programming while building and strengthening community connections. The training includes hands-on, child-centered learning experiences like pickling, taste testing, and wool felting! Activities are aligned with practical discussions for community networking with local farmers and food system experts to build FTEC knowledge.
Learn how FTEC concepts help meet multiple standards across licensing, CACFP, VELS and STARS by promoting children’s learning in social emotional well-being, healthy eating habits, family engagement and community building.
These training hours count for both BFIS and CACFP training hours.
