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!

Care and Professional Practice With Elizabeth Hicks

There is so much to think about… and we must not forget our values and vision!

We are doing great at looking after our health and bodies, now it is time to feed our hearts and souls, as well as the children's and families'! How do we do this? … by tapping into our beliefs about how children learn; by observing and providing exploration and play opportunities; and then make learning visible.

We will reflect on the why’s of observing, and listening closely to all aspects of children’s lives with us; and examine simple ways to produce pedagogical documentation during these busy times.


Facilitator Biography: Liz Hicks

Liz, an elementary teacher from England, ECE diploma, 38 years in early childhood, in various capacities, and at present a private consultant working in early childhood education in NS, providing professional development in a variety of topics, environmental rating scales, also consultations and program coordination. I believe children are capable, curious and need to connect with people and the world around them, which is also a belief I have for the educators that work with the children. I believe in lifelong learning for all (especially myself!) and want to help educators provide the best environments and experiences for ALL children that encourage awe, wonder, learning and excitement in discovery.
