Wednesday July 24 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM Knowledge Exchange Gathering with the Ontario Indigenous Centre of Excellence

Embedding Indigenous Knowledge in Early Years and Child Care

The Ontario Indigenous Centre of Excellence for Early Years and Child Care is extending an invitation to early years professionals to attend our upcoming Knowledge Exchange Gathering: Wednesday, July 24th, from 2-4 pm hosted online through Zoom.

This month, Elders, Knowledge Keepers, and educators will be discussing beliefs and values involved in risk-taking and learning for a child and educator with connection to How Does Learning Happen? Ontario's pedagogy for the Early Years and Indigenous pedagogy.  

Location: Online - Zoom
Contact: A Reflective piece from the Gathering Lead, Beatriz Alvarez (RECE, Inuit Liaison): The other day when I crossed the yard, I overheard a teacher asking a child to get down from a child-sized picnic table. What immediately came to my mind was "Why? Why was the child being asked to step off? What were the risks?” On further reflection, I recalled that each winter our play structure is fenced and deemed out of bounds for children for the past 3 years. Increasingly, I question decisions that adults make that take away challenges and opportunities for children to make judgments for themselves, exploring the physical world, and working toward a goal they have set for themselves. This Zoom gathering will be open to the public and community stakeholders. Please, click on the RSVP button below, to hold your space. Additional information will be forwarded. RSVP
