Webinar - Creating a Caring Culture: The Leadership Role

Part of our Supporting Educator Wellbeing During Times of Challenge Online Virtual Institute

Although the social climate of an environment is more or less invisible, if you look closely, you can see it — it is reflected in, and created by, the people in your child care, early years program or school. Larger than any one person’s experience, the social climate tells everyone in the program which attitudes and behaviors are expected, accepted, and valued there, and influences how people act. A positive, caring, welcoming social climate facilitates belonging and learning and can actually prevent or decrease challenging behaviours.

Webinar - Beyond Survival: The Importance of Resilience

Part of our Supporting Educator Wellbeing During Times of Challenge Online Virtual Institute

We may not be able to control everything that is happening in our early years setting, but we can control how we respond. When challenging behaviour occurs, educators need to be powerfully present, emotionally responsive, and role models of healthy social and emotional behaviours. Personal resilience is the capacity to prevent, tolerate, overcome, and be enhanced by adverse events and experiences. Strengthening resilience allows us to moderate our feelings and behaviours; enables us to respond effectively to challenges, and encourages us to develop new skills. Rather than focusing on managing stress, focusing on fostering resilience can be more productive.

Webinar - Removing the Barriers to Play

School Age Series 2: Investigating the Theories of Play and the Principles of Playwork to Support Your School-agers

Playwork and the term Playworker are commonly used terms in the United Kingdom and in many parts of the world, and is rapidly spreading throughout North America. In the UK, Playworkers work with children and young people from 4-16 years in school-age programs, holiday programs, adventure playgrounds, on playbus’ and as play rangers. Playwork has evolved since post war Britain and is a profession in its own right. Although it shares some aspects of early learning and child care, it has philosophies, principles, and practices unique to Playwork. Play is seen as a process, not a product. Does that sound familiar? And one of the roles of a Playworker is to enrich the environment to provide ‘playable spaces’ for children, restoring play and lost experiences.

Session Two: Removing the Barriers to Play
In session two, participants will be introduced - in a playful way - to some of the underpinning theories of Playwork. These will include flexible environments, intervention strategies to facilitate the play process, and responding to children’s play cues to support free play and to remove barriers to play

Webinar - Sharing the Value of Unstructured Play Experiences with Families and Colleagues

As we are moving away from theme based planning to an emergent approach to learning through play, which is in line with Ontario’s Early Learning Frameworks, the way that we
are working with children in the early learning and child care field is changing. This workshop will support educators to explore what unstructured play is, the importance and benefits to children, and how they can communicate this to fellow educators and families. The session will look at intentional, open-ended experiences and dispel the myth of it being a ‘free for all’. Participants will have an opportunity to try out some practical, interactive ways to convey the importance of unstructured play in an early learning and child care environment.

Educators can become co-learners with children and families through valuing children’s experiences and valuing both children’s and families’ perspectives. How Does Learning Happen? Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early Years is encouraging educators to move beyond simply providing activities for children and families. We are being asked to think deeply about the context and meaning behind children’s and families’ experiences, thinking and learning in a more complex way. So how can Educators make children’s learning visible with families? How can pedagogical documentation support the shift and highlight the intentionality?
