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!

Licensed or Aspiring Licensed Family Home Centre Network

Due to low registration for December, we have moved this meeting to January.

We will be joined by Robin and Suzanne from the Canadian Child Care Ferderation to share news about their exciting new project-- E3:  Engage, Enable and Empower! This exciting project is a new Family Child Care Training Project.

This initiative will support family/home child care providers across Canada with

• New, online, professional development opportunities - a 10 module, revised Family Child Care Training Program in English and French (based on CCCF’s print version), webinars in English and French plus multilingual downloadable resources

• The creation of virtual learning communities and;

• A national community of providers from coast to coast to coast.


The Family Home Centre Network will meet one evening monthly to work together to collaborate in ways of providing high quality childcare.  It is a “come when you can” Network, for anyone who wants to talk about fresh ideas, needs help breaking down barriers, or is interested in professional development! 

We know that Family Home Centres play a vital role in communities and Early Childhood Education, and especially now with PEI being a part of building a Canada Wide system. 

We hope that this Network will build on the foundation and help more families have access to high quality spaces in their communities! 

If you have any questions about the Family Home, please contact  Jennifer Nangreaves at 902-368-0070 or email jennifer.nangreaves@ecdaofpei.ca
