New series coming soon….

cat thinkingAs educators we are constantly on the lookout for innovative ways to further enrich the experience we offer to the children in our program. Whether it is late night scouring of Pinterest  or networking with fellow educators or seeking out conferences and workshops – we are eager to expand our “toolbox”.

Beginning in the new year, we will be offering opportunity to share ideas and finds by hosting a blog series called Enriching Areas of Interest. The early years team at the Ministry will collect ideas on a variety of areas of interest related to early learning such as, light tables, authentic movement, natural play materials, art exploration, etc and highlight them for our readers. We encourage educators to share their genius ideas and clever finds in the comment section of each post with the hope of creating a great starting point for educators wanting to freshen up their StrongStart BC programs or early learning classrooms.

To add to the innovation, any idea we at the Ministry highlight will be shown in a StrongStart BC program to Grade 3 progression – a neat way to see how the same idea can be used and the relevancy in all early learning environments.

Let us know what areas you would love to see highlighted and we will add them to our ever-growing list!!

You can email any idea or wish to Catherine.jensen@gov.bc.ca

Looking forward to sharing innovative approaches and ideas as well as learning a few too!!
