10 Reasons to Choose Quality Early Learning and Child Care

Expert knowledge Early childhood educators are experts in child development and are trained to create inspiring learning environments!
Intentionality Early childhood educators provide your child the gift of time and attention. They will stop and explore the new flowers or jump in the mud puddles with your child.
Young at heart Early childhood educators know how to have fun! They’re not afraid to be silly and laugh with your child; all while nurturing your child’s creativity and helping to build their self-confidence.
Setting limits Every child needs reasonable boundaries, such as no playing ball inside. Early childhood educators set limits and support families in doing the same.
Love of literacy Early childhood educators read and tell stories, sing songs, and do puppet shows to inspire a love of language and to build early literacy skills.

Confidence boost Early childhood educators provide safe opportunities for your child to be independent and to become confident in their personality and decision making skills.
Inspired learning Early childhood educators ask open-ended questions to inspire creative thought and curiosity, to encourage children to explore, and to make learning fun.
Life skills Early childhood educators use their expertise to develop programs that use play as a tool for teaching math, literacy, science and essential life skills that last for life!
Making friends Early childhood educators are educated to appropriately support children to gain social skills, which are so important in making friends and developing positive relationships!
Helping hand Everyone gets stumped by parenting from time to time - juggling schedules, demands, and behaviours. When it gets tough and you need someone to talk to, reach out to your child’s early childhood educator!

Pre-conference Day for Team Leaders with Holly Elissa Bruno

Registration for this event is now open!

What You Need to Lead
Facilitator: Holly Elissa Bruno
8:30 am – 4:30 pm

According to research reported in Harvard Business Review, our most successful leaders are skilled managers of people who inspire employees to greatness. Eighty percent of crucial life decisions require emotional intelligence (the ability to read people as well as we read books). What competencies do we need to keep everyone’s eyes on the prize especially when those around us are losing their cool and blaming us? You’ll leave this workshop with some powerful answers and useful tools.

Who should attend this year's pre-conference day? Given the emphasis on exploring new professional practices, it is recommended that this pre-conference learning day is attended by any member of a professional team. Ideally, a director and/or a staff person in a supervisory position working directly with children would ensure this practical, co-learning experience is transferred back and applied to your professional practices as you return to work.
