Introduction to Emergent Curriculum / ECE Environments for Success

September 14th 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

Introduction to Emergent Curriculum

How do you include children’s thoughts, interests and ideas into your program planning? Discover strategies for incorporating emergent curriculum opportunities into your daily practice. Discover how to use observation, documentation and the Early Learning Framework to assist educators in providing engaging, reflective learning experiences for children and families.

Setting Up ECE Environments for Success

Inspiration comes in many forms. Discover how to offer opportunities for children and families to explore your learning environment. How can we as educators bring nature into our spaces, include recyclable materials in our room set up, create everything from quiet areas that support emotional development to messy sensory fun? Have you ever tried putting together a construction zone for large motor play? We will also discuss evaluating your program and potential changes that could be made to layouts, as well as recognizing the important role documentation plays in ECE programs.
