Early Life and Education
Early development in a child is an integral part of their life. It has the power to shape their social, emotional and physical wellbeing throughout their entire lifespan.
Children’s development between birth and age eight is a period of remarkable brain growth that influences their capacity for learning, behavior and health. That is why UNESCO believes that investing in quality early childhood education programs is one of the most beneficial investments a nation can make as it promotes holistic development, gender equality and social cohesion.
Educators and parents play an essential role in supporting a child’s success at every psychosocial stage of development by offering the support that fosters positive learning experiences throughout their lifetime. A strong school-family partnership can drastically reduce the potential for traumatic experiences that might set young children on an unhealthy path to adulthood.
Career development is the process of honing one’s skills, knowledge and professional potential through tailored instruction and resources. At Johns Hopkins University, it plays an integral role in helping students and staff reach their professional goals.
Johns Hopkins Office of Continuing Education (JCCE) offers an array of classes and workshops for students, staff, and faculty. These programs can help you hone new skills, amplify existing strengths, pursue a new career path or gain a better understanding of our university’s operations.
John’s Workshop’s Professional Modeling Workshop equips students with the necessary skills for modeling, such as runway walking with poise and confidence, prepping for an audition or show, using professional makeup techniques and hairstyling, and creating a polished outer appearance. This is an invaluable course for anyone wanting to advance their career while increasing self-assurance.
