10 Reasons to Choose Quality Early Learning and Child Care

Expert knowledge Early childhood educators are experts in child development and are trained to create inspiring learning environments!
Intentionality Early childhood educators provide your child the gift of time and attention. They will stop and explore the new flowers or jump in the mud puddles with your child.
Young at heart Early childhood educators know how to have fun! They’re not afraid to be silly and laugh with your child; all while nurturing your child’s creativity and helping to build their self-confidence.
Setting limits Every child needs reasonable boundaries, such as no playing ball inside. Early childhood educators set limits and support families in doing the same.
Love of literacy Early childhood educators read and tell stories, sing songs, and do puppet shows to inspire a love of language and to build early literacy skills.

Confidence boost Early childhood educators provide safe opportunities for your child to be independent and to become confident in their personality and decision making skills.
Inspired learning Early childhood educators ask open-ended questions to inspire creative thought and curiosity, to encourage children to explore, and to make learning fun.
Life skills Early childhood educators use their expertise to develop programs that use play as a tool for teaching math, literacy, science and essential life skills that last for life!
Making friends Early childhood educators are educated to appropriately support children to gain social skills, which are so important in making friends and developing positive relationships!
Helping hand Everyone gets stumped by parenting from time to time - juggling schedules, demands, and behaviours. When it gets tough and you need someone to talk to, reach out to your child’s early childhood educator!

Memo from the Dept. of Education, Early Learning & Culture

April 29th, 2016

In anticipation of implementation of the Early Learning and Child Care Act and Regulations later this year, changes to processing of applications for staff certification through the Child Care Facilities Board will be applied.

Effective May 1, 2016 individuals seeking certification through the Child Care Facilities Board must meet current criteria as detailed in the Child Care Facilities Act, R.S.P.E.I. 1988, Cap. C-5.

Individuals who have applied for certification prior to this date, and received a letter from the Child Care Facilities Board indicating what additional courses must be completed for certification, must complete the requirements as detailed in their personalized letter prior to December 31st, 2016 for the purposes of certification.  After this date, the Early Learning and Child Care Board will not consider itself bound by the information in such letters for the purpose of determining whether an individual has satisfied the requirements for certification under the Early Learning and Child Care Act.

If you have any questions throughout this process, please contact Doreen Gillis at 902-368-6518 or degillis@gov.pe.ca

En prévision de la mise en œuvre de la Early Learning and Child Care Act (loi sur l’apprentissage et la garde des jeunes enfants) et de ses règlements plus tard au cours de l’année, des changements au processus de traitement des demandes de certification du personnel faites au Conseil des établissements de services de garde seront appliqués.

À partir du 1er mai 2016, les personnes désirant obtenir une certification du Conseil des établissements de services de garde devront répondre aux exigences énoncées dans laChild Care Facilities Act, R.S.P.E.I. 1988, Cap. C-5 (loi sur les établissements de garde).

Les personnes ayant fait une demande avant cette date et ayant reçu une lettre du Conseil indiquant quels cours elles doivent suivre pour obtenir une certification doivent répondre aux exigences énoncées dans leur lettre avant le 31 décembre 2016 pour obtenir la certification. Après cette date, le Conseil ne déterminera plus l’admissibilité à la certification en vertu de laEarly Learning and Child Care Act de ces personnes en fonction de l’information fournie dans la lettre qu’elles ont reçue.
