The Halton Resource Connection

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.

CDCRP–A great resource for educators

 

 

 

 

Every RECE living or working in the Region of Peel should have membership with CDCRP.

CDCRP offers many professional development resources for not only ECEs but also parents and community members. Be it a job bank, professional development courses and seminars, or the opportunity to borrow resources for classrooms, CDRCP has it all. The highlight of this website for me is the webinars and eLearning opportunities, because they could be accessed by anywhere.

I am going to post a link to the website on the professional development page as well.
