    Module 8: Relationships with Families and Community

    Children come to us from diverse families and communities, and we want them to feel welcomed, comfortable, and understood. How can we welcome and collaborate with all families so that everyone is included in our settings? What does it mean to develop authentic relationships? Do parents have a place in decision-making within our settings? How do we build relationships and collaborations with our cities and towns and how does this benefit all of us?

    In this module, we will hear from educators who have developed, through varied approaches, strong and respectful relationships with families and communities.

    Participants will:

    • Examine the idea of ‘relationship building’ and what this looks like in practice

    • Share ‘what has worked’ in terms of authentic collaborations

    • Understand the journey of building relationships over time, and the benefits of taking the time to do this: The development of trust, understanding of each others’ viewpoints, collaboration in terms of programme development.

    • Consider the ‘Image of the Parent’ and its impact.

    *this is a 2 evening online session, you must attend both in order to receive a certificate*

    January 19th 6:30pm to 8:30pm and January 21st 6:30pm to 8:30pm

    Module 5: Observation for Decision-Making Purposes

    In our daily work, we observe children all the time – but how are we observing, and for what purpose? Knowing what to look for, and the possibilities for responding to what we see and hear, is a crucial part of inquiry-based curriculum, play-based practice, and the building of responsive and meaningful teaching and learning.

    In Module 5, educators and leaders will:

    • Learn about ‘ways of noticing’ that are useful and useable during our daily work, together with varied methods of taking notes and photos.
    • Think through what we are looking for, and how to use the information that we have collected.
    • Connect these approaches to the framework in natural and authentic ways, using our relationships with children as one of the cornerstones of our work.

    Additionally, leaders will learn how to support this type of observation, develop systems that work, and model the development of responsive programming.

    This module is being hosted by NSCC Burridge Campus/ Early Childhood Development Support Centre and is a 2 evening Online Session 

    January 19 6:30-8:30 & January 20 6:30-8:30

    $80 (Online Event)

    In this 4-part series we define identity and talk about how to discern and affirm identities in young children. We touch on what intersectionality means for young children and use a practical eye to consider the ways we respect and provide space for expansive identities using classroom materials, classroom discourse, promoting children’s peer relationships, and informing and evolving our own internal perspectives. As the sessions unfold, we will assess, learn, create, and reflect. Between sessions participants will have opportunities to try ideas in their own classrooms and then share their progress.

    • January 19: Supporting identity and Representation in Our Classrooms a Reflective Practice Approach (1.5 hours)
    • January 26: Creating Environments for Positive Identity Development (books-materials-discourse) (1.5 hours)
    • February 2: Creating Environments for Positive Identity Development (peer relationships-play) (1.5 hours)
    • February 9: Looking Ahead: Making, Growing, Evolving – An Action Plan for Continued Development (1.5 hours)

    Presenter: Ron Grady (MS Ed) is an early childhood educator with a passion for child-centered and constructivist methodologies. He encourages children to learn through art, nature, and play and enjoys exploring the ways that these connect to deep processes of creative, personal, and academic inquiry. He began working with children in undergrad, where he worked on projects focused on children’s social and cognitive development. As he made repeated visits to his institution’s lab school, he found himself drawn to the life he found within the classrooms and ever since then he has been devoted to integrating these two loves.

    Winter is here! What a magical season to play outside! When outdoor play becomes an integral part of early childhood pedagogy even in winter, children can explore, experiment, and discover the beauty of winter, and therefore, thrive. This 2-part series will offer opportunities to seek possibilities and opportunities to facilitate and support children’s outdoor play in winter. Through these series, participants will be able to:

    • Explain the importance of outdoor play in winter
    • Discuss and practice various practical ideas for outdoor play experiences in winter
    • Examine strategies to create outdoor play environments that trigger children’s curiosity
    • Describe how the use of pedagogical documentation helps co-construct outdoor play pedagogy with children and their families

    Presenter: Bora Kim is a Registered Early Childhood Educator and a professor in the Early Childhood Education at Humber College in Toronto. Bora’s work, research, and advocacy focus on early years pedagogy that promotes play in natural environments across all seasons and incorporates pedagogical documentation for collaborative inquiries. Her experiences in Nova Scotia, Alberta, and Ontario have enriched her passion and perspectives on outdoor play. Many of you will know Bora from her time with the Outdoor Play Project and EYCDC|NSCECE. We are thrilled to welcome her back to share winter play ideas inspired by three provinces.
