Early Learning and Child Care training

Funded by the Government of Canada through the Early Learning and Child Care Agreement

The Government of Nunavut (GN) Department of Education will be holding Early Learning and Child Care training and professional development August 24 - 29, 2018.

This training will provide early childhood educators and facility operators from across Nunavut the opportunity to participate in sessions highlighting current best practices as well as financial literacy, with other professionals in the field.

In addition to the training sessions, the department will unveil a line of products that will assist early childhood educators in planning their programming. These include books published in all four official languages, a Nunavut themed play rug, interactive toys, posters, and vocabulary stickers.

The training and development of early childhood education products is made possible by the three-year bilateral agreement the GN entered in with the Government of Canada in 2017. This agreement provides $2.3 million annually to support Early Learning and Child Care programs and services.
