Exploring the Early Learning Framework (ELF) - December Community of Practice

Candy Ng & Karen Lim

6:30pm - 7:30pm


Date: Dec 7, 2021 | Time: 6:30pm - 7:30pm

Let’s build a village together. In this community of practice, we want to create a supportive environment for participants to share their experiences working in the early years field. From daily struggles to moments of success, we will be using the principles of the Early Learning Framework to guide our discussions. Join us for an hour of meaningful conversations as we work together to foster a stronger Early Years community in Richmond. 

For this networking session, we will be looking at the Fourth Inquiry: Identities, Social Responsibility, and Diversity (BC Early Learning Framework).


Facilitator Notes: 

1.  We provide a space free of judgment, and we ask participants to respect everyone’s opinions and privacy. Please do not share any conversations and discussions outside of our group.  If you are unsure, please check with one of the facilitators.  

2.  Each month we will lead with one of the living inquiries and use it as a base of our discussion and see where our conversation takes us.  

3.  We will be inviting participants to share any experience they are comfortable in to bring forth for discussion. If someone wants to share anonymously, they may do so by contacting the facilitator privately.  

4.  Facilitators will be taking notes and providing summaries of the discussions via email after each session.   

NOTE: This is an in-person community of practice. As such, limited spaces are available and masks are required for all participants. Certificates will be issued at the end of each session. 

Location: The Richmond Caring Place
