Webinar Description

The preschool years are a crucial phase of child development that impacts a child's successful transition to kindergarten. Early Childhood Professionals, including ECE's play a vital role in helping families notice a child's challenges and find the support they may need as they transition to other education settings. 

These challenges include:

  • early literacy
  • numeracy
  • speech and language acquisition
  • physical literacy

This workshop covers key aspects of child development and learning and gives early childhood educators tools to help families seek further support.
