Presented by Kira Reynolds, Manager Early Learning Division at Ministry of Education
"My small team (i.e. the early learning branch in the Ministry of Education) is responsible for programs that improve children’s successful transitions into the K-12 system, including the StrongStart BC program. As part of government’s Childcare BC strategy, we support quality improvements through initiatives that promote the use of the B.C. Early Learning Framework in early years and primary school settings. We lead professional learning networks for teachers and early childhood educators with a lens on improving children’s social and emotional well-being and on new ways to strengthen their Kindergarten transition experience."
For this workshop Kira will share an overview of the B.C. Early Learning Framework, talk about the Early Learning Framework introductory online course (it’s free!), and share information on our new parent support materials. There will be plenty of time to ask questions during this presentation so please come prepared with your questions!
