    Building Skills for Change in Early Years and Child Care-Community Mobilizing Workshop-London

    Coming to London! June 1 & 2 2019

    We are partnering with the Institute for Change Leaders and the Ontario Coalition for Better Child Care to provide a customized community mobilizing workshop with the aim of connecting ECEs and early years staff with parents and engaged community members to help strengthen the campaign for Professional Pay & Decent Work in early years and child care.  

    This 2 day session is an excellent opportunity for those working or studying in the early years (EarlyON, FDK etc) and child care sector and for parents and community members who are interested in taking up an active role in their communities and in the Professional Pay & Decent Work campaign. Participants will gain the skills and confidence to engage others and to work together to champion positive change in the sector.

    The curriculum prioritizes teaching you how to:

    • Gain self confidence to tell your story/speak your mind to motivate others  
    • Recruit and retain members of your community/program to work towards a common goal
    • Build strong Communities of Practice (CoP) that foster leadership among ECEs, staff and parents
    • Strategize in a CoP setting and utilize tactics that build power and move decision makers

    Participants will take away skills and knowledge that can be used to organize Communities of Practice (CoP) and promote leadership among teams in a variety of early years settings.

    Lunch & refreshments will be provided for the 2 day session.  

    Professional Learning certificates will be provided to participants.
