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!

Strategies for Creating A Cohesive Team Culture with Julie Hansen

 As we embark on a new normal amidst COVID 19 in childcare programs, we look for effective ways to establish strategies that support a cohesive team culture within early childhood settings. Gain a clear understanding of each team members' communications style, create individual and program goals, and develop a team mission statement. Learning the importance of setting aside time to connect with each team member to support their daily practice. Understand the power of reflection and the importance of acknowledging team effort on a regular basis. These are all effective management strategies that support teamwork. With self –reflection built into the session educators and directors alike will walk away with tools to implement into their practice and creative ways to support and motivate one another.
