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!

Toddler Talking Tips (New Date)

How can we create language rich environments to support our toddler’s communication skills. This interactive PD session will offer participants opportunities to practice using go-to SLP strategies that promote developing language skills. Toddlers are busy people so all strategies discussed are able to be implemented while on the move during play and everyday routines.

Participants are asked to take along 1-2 toys/activities that they love playing with at their centre (i.e. a jar of play dough, a few toy food items, a book, a tractor etc).

 

Facilitator Biography:

 Erica is a Health PEI speech-language pathologist working in Summerside. She believes the best SLP therapy happens when people are having fun together.  She has a love for golden retrievers, beach days, and peanut butter cups. If she could pack two things for a preschooler desert island she’d be taking the giant container of bubbles and a stack of lift the flap books.
