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!

- April Supervisors Network Meeting (Summerside)

This event was originally scheduled for February but was postponed due to weather until April 18th. 

Detry Carragher will be joining us to discuss staff retention techniques.
Approved for 2.5 hours of on-going training by the ELCCB.

This meeting will be held in Summerside at the Centre Belle Alliance for the convenience of Prince County supervisors, but we encourage supervisors from all across PEI to join us! Registration is required for all network meetings. This meeting will run with a minimum of 10 registered participants.

Workshop Description: Power of Expectations
Every aspect of employment from recruitment, compensation, benefits, and workplace culture is based on implicit and explicit expectations.  As a leader of your organization though, it can be a challenge to balance the needs of both the employer and employee.  We'll have an enlightening discussion and our expectation is that you'll leave this session with a fresh take on employee recruitment and retention strategies.
