Event Details
Focusing on Play
The Early Childhood Educators of British Columbia and Red River College are offering another online workshop. The workshop content (videos, readings, links, games, discussions) is completely online and available to participants during the duration of the workshop. Participants have complete flexibility to work through the materials at times that are most convenient for them. The content is from the Science of Early Child Development (SECD). SECD’s engaging, multimedia resources are used around the world by people who want to learn more about the impact of the early years on lifelong health and well-being.
N.B. Participants should have a reliable internet connection and be comfortable reading and writing in English. Topics include:
• Active play
• Outdoor play
• Rough & tumble and risky play
• The role of play in self-regulation
• The value of play for learning and development
• Setting the stage for play
This workshop is equivalent to a full day workshop, or six hours of professional development.
Participants will watch videos of children from around the world, hear from experts discussing the topics, do short readings and play interactive review games. Participants will also “meet” in online discussions guided by a facilitator, to hear each other’s ideas, and reflect on and apply what they learn. Online registration will open in late June at

Registration deadline is October 17th at 12noon. The registration fee is: $80.00 for ECEBC Provincial Members and $150.00 for Non-Members.
