Event description

Description

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.

Enjoy the chance to learn from colleagues from different sectors, divisions and parts of the Province in a day full of hands on and reflective learning, examine many resources that can enrich your classrooms and your practice.

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

Lunch is on your own.
