PCEC will host two professional development events for early learning and care providers on the Saanich Peninsula, one in May, 2013, and the other in late November, 2013. The audience for these events is comprised of early learning and care providers, Kindergarten and Grade One teachers, school administrators and community resource personnel. The sessions will continue the dialogue about Reggio inspired, developmentally appropriate, reflective practice in the early years environment. This has been a very successful format with early years educators on the Peninsula looking forward to these events. A certificate for professional development hours is provided to participants to help maintain their certification. For more information, visit www.peninsulaconnectionsforkids.ca
