NetWorking

Networking is a vital aspect to the professional growth of early childhood educators. Strive provides opportunities for practitioners to network and connect with other professionals within environments that stimulate creativity and innovation. Collaboration and innovation combine to improve practice and impact. We are committed to building an environment that cultivated innovative collaboration because it allows for new pathways to success. Networking renews and refreshes, it brings synergy and pushes boundaries.

Our current Networks include:

  • Early Years Professional Network
  • Child Care Cooks and Dietary Planners Network
  • Nursery School and Parent Cooperative Network
  • Réseau Francophones

 

Early Years Professional Network

The Early Years Professional Network is an opportunity for child care and early years professionals to come together to exchange ideas, co-construct knowledge and contribute perspectives. This ongoing community of practice will support practitioners to make meaning of new ideas through conversations, article discussions and site tours, and provide considerations for how these ideas can be implemented into practice.

All are welcome! If you are interested in attending a network meeting, visit EVENTS.

 

Child Care Cooks and Dietary Planners Network

Cooks and Dietary Planners are invited to meet, share ideas, and engage in conversations with fellow professionals. Ginette Blake, Public Health Dietitian with the Middlesex-London Health Unit will facilitate sessions to discuss healthy eating and menu planning from the perspective of the new Child Care and Early Years Act and current nutrition recommendations for children.

All are welcome! If you are interested in attending a network meeting, visit EVENTS.

 

Nursery School and Parent Cooperative Network

With new legislation and licensing requirements, part-time programs are in the process of making some changes. The purpose of this group is to network, collaborate, brainstorm, and share ideas in moving forward with these changes, while still keeping the philosophy of your programs.

This group will give you the opportunity to connect with others who are in the same situation and to work together to figure out how to implement these changes and share information with families. Bring ideas, successes, questions, and concerns, and we will work through them together.

All are welcome! If you are interested in attending a network meeting, visit EVENTS.

 

Réseau Franchophones

L’objectif du réseau est de réunir les professionnels fancophones en petit enfance pour collaborer, discuter et échanger sur leurs idées, succès, questions et inquiétudes. C’est aussi l’occasion d’identifier les besoins en développement professionnel et soutenir les meilleures pratiques pour des services en petit enfance francophone de qualité.

Tout le monde est bienvenu! S’inscrire à notre prochaine réunion ici: EVENTS.
