    Module 3 - Rattacher nos pratiques au cadre pédagogique

    Les pratiques varient considérablement d’un programme à l’autre dans la petite enfance dans notre province et pourtant, nous avons tous quelque chose en commun, à savoir le souhait d’offrir le meilleur programme possible à tous nos enfants. Que dit le cadre pédagogique sur la réalisation de nos belles intentions dans la pratique? Comment cela se présente-t-il dans notre travail au quotidien?

    Dans ce module, les éducatrices examineront six aspects du cadre pédagogique : la prise en compte des besoins des enfants; l’enseignement délibéré; les relations avec les gens, les ressources et le monde; le lien entre notre image de l’enfant et ce que nous faisons dans la pratique; le jeu en tant que mode d’apprentissage; et le rôle des familles, de la communauté et de la culture. Pour tous ces aspects, il est possible d’établir des liens concrets avec notre travail au quotidien auprès des enfants et nous utiliserons des activités et des échanges — notamment avec le cycle de la planification réfléchie — pour donner vie à ces différents aspects.

    Les membres du personnel de direction travailleront également sur ces aspects, mais ils auront en outre l’occasion de se demander ce qu’ils pourraient faire pour faciliter l’adoption de telles pratiques dans le milieu de travail, pour favoriser la participation des familles aux processus de prise de décisions et pour mettre en place des communautés de pratique en guise de système d’appoint pour les éducatrices, ainsi que de s’interroger sur le rôle du leadeurship pédagogique lors de la transition quand nous commencerons à procéder aux changements et aux ajustements dans nos pratiques en salle de classe.

    *Cette session en ligne de 4 heures sera offerte le 3 décembre 2022 de 9h à 13h

  • NSCECE - Reflective Seminars: CHOMP: Getting Ahead of Biting in Group Care Settings

    View Details


    December 6, 2022  7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

    Watch Carrie Melsom's seminar on biting and join other ECEs to discuss what prevention strategies you can apply in your classroom. 

    Facilitated by Carrie Melsom, hosted by Olha Khaperska (EYCDC).

    IMPORTANT: Please make sure you watched the CHOMP! seminar. It is available on our on-demand PD platform with a 30-day free trial period.

    We will structure our online discussion around the learning outcomes of the seminar:

    • Discuss why biting in group care is unfortunate, not unexpected.
    • Talk about environmental, sensory, and developmental factors that might lead to biting.
    • Consider possible prevention steps for a child who is about to bite.
    • Analyze action steps if a bite occurs.
    • Identify prevention roles and strategies for educators when a child gets stuck using biting to meet needs.
    • Discuss the value of developing and communicating a biting policy to share with families on enrollment.
