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!

2021 ECDA Fall Conference- "Be the Leader You Would Follow"

The 2021 ECDA Fall Conference is a bit different this year due to covid regulations, it will be an exciting event held virtually on November 12th and 15th, with some bonus content accessible in Whova (our event software), on the days between! 

Much like last year, it has been a tough year, but our sector has shown resilience and leadership countless times. We have shown this in how we have adapted, pivoted, and grown countless times! As the world spiraled, and began navigating a global pandemic, ECEs stepped the frontlines navigating this new world alongside children and families. They used their unique skillset to create safe places, consistency and security for the children in their lives, even when they weren't feeling these things themselves.  It has been a difficult year at times, but it has also been a time of learning and growing, and with this conference we continue to learn and continue to grow, both in our professional and personal advocacy skills. 

Regardless of which sessions you attend, the expertise of the facilitators will revitalize your passion for your work in the field of early childhood care and education, and encourage you to become the leader you would want to follow.

We thank you in advance for attending the 2021 ECDA Fall Conference–the knowledge you gain enriches the futures of the families and children in your care!

Mark your calendar and get excited for another uplifting, inspiring conference with PEI's ELCC field!
