Learning in the Early Years

Presented by: ETFO

Learning in the Early Years is a dynamic workshop being offered in partnership with ETFO Provincial. This interactive workshop will provide educators with the opportunity to explore the child as learner, the educator in the early years classroom, the learning environment, and powerful classroom play.

PLEASE NOTE: Participants will need to bring a copy of the Ministry of Education Kindergarten Program Document (2016) if they have one, if not copies of the pages reflected in the workshop will be made available.

Participants will need to bring 5-8 photographs of children engaged in play, black and white/colour but printed on paper not digitally. You will get them back when you leave. If you have a photo or two of an outdoor learning environment and a favourite picture book that you love to use in your classroom that will add to our collective learning experience.

Please Note this is a 2 weeks course and you will be required to attend both weeks.

A light Supper will be provided.



GEDSB OT members may attend a professional learning conference/seminar related to their specific interest and needs including gender specific programs.
