Are you a faculty member at an Ontario university or an ECE instructor at an Ontario college interested in Kindergarten math? Join us for the Kindergarten Forum for Action on August 17, 2017 at the University of Guelph Humber!
Our Critical Transitions Community of Practice, in collaboration with the Association of Early Childhood Educators of Ontario (AECEO), is bringing together faculty and instructors who play a key role in the professional education of Kindergarten teaching teams in Ontario.
Faculty and instructors are invited to engage in dialogue, share knowledge, deepen learning, refine practices and connect with colleagues about early math development. The goal of the day will be to prepare a report and a plan for action to improve the mathematics outcomes of Kindergarten children in Ontario.
