Live and Learn

It’s been a while since we’ve posted….our apologies!

Here’s our latest update:

Christine Hibbert (Executive Director), Tyler Summers (Program Manager) and Kate Alexander (Program Coordinator – Southlands) attended the Early Childhood Educators of British Columbia Conference this week in Vancouver/Richmond. They were updated on research and practice on assessment and children’s learning behaviour.

Our Program Leaders and Program Coordinators attended the School Age Child Care Conference in Vancouver on May 9th where their minds were sharpened with new techniques, tips and ideas for programming and interacting with the kids.

In March of 2008, Joline Bird (Kindercare Coordinator) and Skye-lea Farr (Younger Kids Program Coordinator – General Gordon) flew to sunny Ft. Lauderdale for the National School Age Child Care Conference where they did not vacation but, rather, developed their skills and passed on their new knowledge to fellow staff.

Take a moment to ask a staff about his/her Pro-D experience on how to keep JKC a safe, fun and exciting place to be!

Don’t you wanna see what your kids are doing at JKC?

The Older Kids’ Program at Bayview embarked on an adventurous scavenger hunt around downtown during Spring Break 2008. These kooky kids shook hands with friendly new people, did push-ups in retail stores, posed with statues, mimicked window mannequins, performed for speakers’ corner, took an inside tour of a police car (by request of course!), danced in a hotel lobby and much, much more! Groups of four travelled together with a staff and explored how spending time with their friends and enjoying Vancouver’s simplest pleasures can be so much fun…and free!
