Workshop Hosting

Our open to registration public GDO-R trainings are hosted by partner sites across the country. We welcome inquiries from possible GDO-R workshop host sites. Are you interested?

As host, your responsibilities include:

  • A room that can accommodate up to 30 people comfortably, with air conditioning in the summer months;
  • Light snacks (coffee/muffins) for morning/afternoon break;  and
  • Three children volunteers of differing ages between 2.5 and 6, for our demonstration, one each day.
  • At least 5 participants from your school and surrounding schools (this is necessary to be considered to host)

To show our appreciation for hosting a GDO-R Workshop, Gesell Institute offers one free scholarship for a participant from the host site to attend, after 10 paid participants have registered (a value of $549).  If 20 register, you will receive a 2nd free scholarship (a total value of $1,090).

If you are interested, please contact Erin Akers, National Director of Education and Development

In addition to contacting Erin Akers, you may download this editable flyer to increase awareness and interest in your school and the surrounding areas.

Private GDO-R Group Workshops

Often schools and early childhood education centers prefer to hold a private group training, for their staff only. This could be as a team building PD exercise or because it is more cost efficient or because our currently scheduled dates do not match your needs. We would love to schedule a private GDO-R training with you.

The Private GDO-R Group Rate is $4,490 plus travel fees for the first 10 participants, and $395 for each additional participant over 10.
