Event Details

There are more young children than ever in Manitoba who start early childhood services or school with a first or home language other than English or French. This full day of shared experiential learning will provide information to assist children from birth to six years in learning English as an additional language and offer practical suggestions to support early childhood and Early Years educators in their work with children and families from diverse communities.

Target Audience: Early Childhood Educators, Nursery, Kindergarten, and Grade 1 teachers.

Lunch on your own: Brownbag welcomed. Coffee will be available in the morning and at coffee breaks.
