Youville Celebrates Young Parent Day and ECE Appreciation Day
On Wednesday, October 29th, Youville Centre celebrated two special occasions that happened to fall on the same day: Young Parent Day, and Childcare Worker and Early Childhood Educator (ECE) Appreciation Day!
To celebrate these two important occasions, we held a special “Mom & Me” music circle in each childcare room, where staff, moms and children could enjoy some focused quality time. We also had a cake as a treat for everyone!
Every day here at Youville is full of activity, so it was nice to take some time to appreciate not only our young moms who courageously work hard each day to create a brighter future for themselves and their children, but also for our passionate and dedicated Early Childhood Educators who truly make a difference each day with two generations through their work in child development.
Youville Centre’s child development centre is a childcare with a difference — we use the ELECT Framework (Early Learning for Every Child Today), track the children’s development daily, screen for special needs such as speech and language pathology, and we are implementing a strong focus on infant mental health promotion.
