Today I had an amazing opportunity to attend the Home Child Care High/Scope Conference hosted by the Region of Waterloo Home Child Care. I was thrilled to meet some educators I had previously only interacted with online.
Beginning with the Perry Preschool Study, [High/Scope] revolutionized early childhood education with a new approach to teaching and learning. Research-based and child-focused, the HighScope Curriculum uses active participatory learning and the plan-do-review process to achieve powerful, positive outcomes. (High/Scope)
Lesley and I attended the workshop Building Authentic Relationships with Children ? in the morning.
This video that the presenter shared moved me so much.
When we encourage children to face small fears when they’re small, they’ll be able to overcome the big fears when they’re big.
During the last workshop of the day we explored developing positive relationships with families. Relationships are the heart of early learning, building supportive and trusting relationships with children and families is such a huge part of our professional practice.
