Educators are competent and capable, curious and rich in experience. They are knowledgeable, caring, reflective, and resourceful professionals. They bring diverse social, cultural and linguistic perspectives. They collaborate with others to create engaging environments and experiences to foster children's learning and development. Educators are lifelong learners. They take responsibility for their own learning and make decisions about ways to integrate knowledge from theory, research, their own experience, and their understanding of the individual children and families they work with. Every educator should feel he or she belongs, is a valuable contributor, and deserves the opportunity to engage in meaningful work.1
As the Consolidated Municipal Service Manager, the City of Windsor supports professional learning and development opportunities for Early Learning Professionals working with children 0-12 years of age in Windsor-Essex. A Professional Development (PD) Network has been established with representatives from St. Clair College, School Boards, Child Care Centres and EarlyON Child and Family Centres.
The PD Network provides input and advice on the professional learning and development needs of the community.
