Reinforcing Our Early Years Practice to Honour and Protect the Rights of Children

Saturday July 28, 2018       Time 10:30 am - 3:00 pm       4 hours 

Fee: $65.00       FCC Fee: $50.00 (Promo Code)                                                                              

In 1959, the United Nations proposed a Declaration of the Rights of the Child launching a campaign that in 1989 saw the United Nations General Assembly unanimously adopt the Convention of the Rights of the Child. This Convention clearly delineates non–negotiable principles of human rights, freedoms and entitlements that apply to children worldwide regardless of race, colour, gender, language, religion, opinions, origins, wealth, birth status or ability. As we approach the 60th anniversary in 2019, of the inception of universal human rights for children, we have an opportunity to examine how our own professional practice in Early Learning and Early Childhood Development Services is evolving to ensure that these rights are promoted for the children and families that we serve.


  • To introduce and further increase the participants’ general understanding of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
  • To inspire participants to examine their current practice and further promote additional thoughts and approaches that support children’s rights through early intervention, child care and other early learning services.

*Suitable for students, novice, intermediate and experienced early learning child care professionals working with children of any age from infant/toddlers to school age children, including children with extra support needs.

Presenter: Claude Painter. Claude Painter has over 35 years of experience teaching in the field of Early Childhood Education. She is a retired faculty member of the Early Childhood Education Department at Langara College in Vancouver, B.C., where for 27 years, she taught numerous courses in both the Early Childhood Education Diploma Program and the Post Basic Early Childhood Special Education Citation Program. She also taught young children between infancy and five years of age, for 20 years in specialized and inclusive early learning centres. Her passion is to provide people of various communities with quality care and education related to early childhood development and early education services.

*Bring a bag lunch (1/2 hour lunch)
