Standing Strong Together

Quality Wilna T'ehl Values: Early Care & Learning


Realizing that as Early Childhood Educators they had strengths and leadership skills, the project team reached out to their community and the neighbouring communities to create a collaborative relationship with the band council and the schools to plan and implement community day conferences for parents that would showcase the importance of early childhood and the early childhood educators in the community. Stronger connections with young families would help the ECEs support the parents with their involvement in their young children’s lives and their understanding of early care and learning. The project team was also interested in developing policies and procedures for ECE programs that reflect and integrate ECE best practices and Gitxsan values.
