Supporting Infants & Toddlers Transition to Group Child Care

Saturday August 26, 2017       Time 10:30 am – 3:00 pm       4 hours

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

Social changes, such as an increase in female participation in the workforce and various non-traditional family compositions have resulted in a greater demand for group child care for infants and toddlers. The goals of this workshop are to highlight the importance of successful and positive transitions from home to group child care for infants, toddlers and their families as well as to seek better ways to accommodate them.

Objectives:

  • To understand the significance of supporting infants, toddlers and their families.
  • To review theoretical backgrounds and the latest studies.
  • To be able to connect theory to practice.

*Suitable for students, novice, intermediate and experienced early learning child care professionals working with infants and toddlers.

Presenter: Minnie Mossop. Minnie is a passionate infant and toddler specialist with a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education from UBC. She has supported hundreds of families and other ECEs in North America through one on one, online consultations and group workshops. Her expertise include general growth & development, behaviour management, mental health, sleep issues (behavioural approach), working with families and parenting issues.

*Bring a bag lunch ( hour lunch).
