Join in recognizing Early Childhood Educator Appreciation Day, October 8, 2015

Message from Mandy Savery-Whiteway, Director of Education

Thursday, October 8, 2015, is recognized as Early Childhood Educator Appreciation Day in Ontario. It is a time to recognize the skills and commitment of employees who engage with our youngest students.

Achieving Excellence & Equity, Learning & Leadership, Public Confidence and Well-Being are priorities in the 2015-2020 Strategic Plan [1], supported through Growing with Character [2]. Early childhood educators (ECEs) who work in our classrooms have knowledge of early childhood development, observation and assessment. They bring a focus on age-appropriate program planning that promotes each child’s physical, cognitive, language, emotional, social and creative development and well-being.

In our organization, ECEs work in partnership with the classroom teacher, contributing to our students’ social, intellectual, emotional and physical development. Their collective commitment to young children is truly valued at Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board.

Please join in celebrating early childhood educators on Thursday, October 8, 2015.
