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!

(Please note time change) Supervisors Network Meeting

The Supervisor's Network Meeting is open to all supervisors, directors, and administrators of licensed early learning and child care programs. The intention of the group is to encourage open dialogue and knowledge exchange to enhance quality practices, such as human resource practices and policies, pedagogy, and leadership.

On September 16th we will be hosting a Supervisor's Network Meeting on Zoom. Depending on the number of people who register for this session (and we do hope it is everyone), it can be difficult to do a round table in this format. So, if you have something you would like to discuss, whether it be a topic you'd like to delve into or a burning question for Sonya, or your colleagues, we ask that you please pre-submit an email to Sonya (within a week of the meeting) signifying that you would like the floor. In this email, identify if there is a topic or questions you would like to discuss.

Please send these emails to s.hooper@ecdaofpei.ca, and in order to ensure we don't miss anyone please put "Supervisor's Network Meeting September 16th" in the email subject line so it is easy to find all requests. 

Please note: Sometimes if it is a complex issue with a lot of parts a phone call is better, rather than trying to explain things by email and awaiting the back and forth response. So if you feel it is a complex issue please feel free to contact Sonya via phone prior to the meeting so you are able to engage in real time-- (902) 368-0070
