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!

ECDA Annual General Meeting: We're Having an Election!

September 5th, 2016

The ECDA invites you to attend our Annual General Meeting (AGM) on September 10th, 2016 at the Rodd Royalty beginning at 8:00 AM.  This is a complimentary breakfast meeting so bring your appetite!  The AGM is free to attend.

We're having an election! Over the past few years, the ECDA has seen an uplifting amount of interest from our members to be a part of something bigger, to make real change and progression happen within our sector. This year, we are very excited to be holding an election for one of the openings on the ECDA Board for the first time in over 10 years! You won't want to miss being a part of this special event. The names and biographies for the candidates will be emailed out to our members on Tuesday September 6th.  

The AGM is our members' greatest opportunity to remain up-to-date with our activities as an organization and to help direct our work for the upcoming year. The input we receive at this meeting tells us how we can best further the work of the early childhood sector. 

Professional members, if you cannot attend please complete a proxy form and send it with a colleague. Proxy forms can be found under "Additional Documentation" at the bottom of the AGM event page on the ECDA website.

Following our AGM we will be offering a Professional Documentation Workshop with Christine McLean. Members and non-members are welcome to attend this workshop, which has been approved 4 on-going training hours by the CCFB. Click here to learn more and to register for this workshop.

We look forward to seeing you September 10th at the Rodd Royalty!
