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!

How to Make the Early Learning Framework Part of your Daily Practice (Alberton - Part Two)

Approved for 3 ongoing PD Hours

This is the second session in a two part series taking place at the Alberton Community Centre also known as the "Hope Centre Clubhouse"

First session: Wednesday, March 6th, 6:30 - 8 p.m.
Second session: Wednesday, April 17th, 6:30 - 8 p.m.

You have to be registered for the first session on March 6th to attend the second.


Workshop Description

Do you work with the Early Learning Framework?

  • Is ELF new to you and the thought of looking through that big binder make you nervous?
  • Have you tried ELF but it felt off; like it didn’t fit you or your practice?
  • Has ELF been something you are familiar with but it’s time to freshen up and get some new ideas?

Join us for a 2-part interactive workshop discussing how to make the Early Learning Framework work for you. You are invited and encouraged to bring along anything that you may be working on; wondering about; stuck on; or proud of to share with our group.

In session 1, we will discuss our own journeys and challenges that arose. We will then talk about our own successes and how we can make ELF a part of our own daily practice. There will be examples of every step of my own journey and what worked at that time and why it needed to change.

In session 2, after having some time to ideas from our first meeting into practice, we will regroup to chat about how it has affected us. Has it been easier to fit ELF into your schedules? Have any of the ideas benefitted you? Have any new challenges arose? And what’s next for us as educators?

The hope is that we will build each other up and offer support where we can.
