This morning for my Quality Assurance class we had a visit from two representatives from The Halton Resource Connection in one my classes. The presentation was about two hours long with a lot content. Now let me just say that I enjoyed EVERY SINGLE MINUTE OF IT, and this is coming from someone who is not a morning person and doesn’t like to sit through long seminars. The presenter, and her assistant, presented the materials very well. The presentation was on Inclusion Quality Scale and Caregiver Interaction Scale, so i guess that factor played in their favour as its something I am very infatuated with. They delivered the content by doing groups activities, showing short clips (even though we had many technical difficulties) and discussions.
They also provided everyone in the classroom with a one day free pass, which I thought was great. Just like CDCRP and THRC has many resources for ECEs and parents. Again another membership I highly recommend for anyone living or working in the Halton Region and also for parents that have a child in childcare in Halton Region.
Again I am going to post a link for the website under the professional development resources page.
