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!

Consumer Product Safety Information Session (Children’s Products)

Approved for 2 Ongoing PD Hours

Workshop Description

Health Canada’s Consumer Product Safety Program is responsible for protecting the public from dangers to their health and safety posed by consumer products in Canada. Recognizing that children are naturally curious, learn through play, and do not easily recognize or avoid danger, keeping them safe from hazards posed by toys and childcare products is a strong area of focus for our outreach activities.  This focus is particularly relevant to Early Childhood Educators (ECEs), given their role in creating a safe environment for children to learn, play, and grow.

Please join us on April 16, 2019 at 9:30 am for an Information Session lead by Product Safety Officer, Patrice Hawkes. This session will cover topics such as specific products (e.g. toys and childcare items), recalls and information resources.  The goal of this session is to help you to recognize and avoid potential safety hazards related to consumer products intended for children.
