About this event

This webinar will discuss the current demands in early learning and child care settings. An introduction to the online training program: Positive Early Childhood Education – the PECE Program – for Early Childhood will be included.

The COVID-19 outbreak has highlighted the importance of having a range of high-quality early learning and care programs to provide rich social, emotional, and educational experiences for children while allowing families to work. The outbreak has also highlighted that individuals who work in the child care and early years sector are passionate, dedicated child-centered professionals.

The importance of early learning and care is well established and has been further amplified during the pandemic. It is also well known Early Childhood Education is both a rewarding and demanding career. Balancing individual needs with a whole classroom approach is a challenging job. Educators have reported struggles with prioritizing the educational and social-emotional needs of children while balancing the increased demands on care and personal protection during a pandemic.

Join for a summary of the research on this evidence-based, accessible (online) professional learning program.

Facilitated by Dr. Shawna Lee – Early Childhood Educator professor, researcher and Triple P Trainer.

Why PECE?

Early Learning and Childcare professionals, parents, and communities understand the necessity of a stable early learning and care system to support parents in maintaining employment and fostering healthy development of young children. The Positive Early Childhood Education (PECE) Program is an online training program, specifically designed to guide educators to support young children to develop and grow their positive skills ( develop increased emotional regulation). The program includes addressing the needs of children who may be finding it difficult to settle into a group environment. PECE was developed and the foundational research trial was conducted in Alberta. The research has continued internationally, and consistently the PECE program indicates educators feel less stressed, more confident, happier at work, and better able to solve problems independently. PECE is an evidence-based online program for educators. Within the 4 multi-media modules there are 22 strategies offered, a downloadable workbook, and other printable and reusable resources.

Additional PECE coach training enhances the growth and integration of the PECE program strategies. The role serves to sustain the investment in training and the gains made with children’s social skills, emotional resilience/ self-regulation as well as, increasing job satisfaction among educators.
