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!

School Age Network: Developmental Language Disorder Workshop

Approved for 2 ongoing PD hours

ECE Network Meetings are open door meetings that welcome anyone working as a frontline educator. They offer a great opportunity to learn and share with other educators best practices, project ideas, time management strategies, even self-care ideas! We welcome you to attend as many meetings as possible that fit your schedule!

Workshop Description

Did you know that nearly 1 in 10 children are affected by a language disorder? Developmental Language Disorder is one of the most poorly recognized and misunderstood childhood disorders despite its high prevalence – it affects more children than dyslexia or autism. Join us for an interactive presentation to learn about this diagnosis and how it affects children's behaviour, social skills, academic achievement, and more, as well as how to support children with language disorders.
