Owning Your Role as a Role Model 6:30 pm
Owning Your Role as a Role Model @ ECCDC
Jan 21 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Early Childhood Education is a demanding field that can be easy for those working in it to lose themselves. Maintaining clarity and a sense of purpose are absolutely integral to an early childhood professional’s health and well-being, as well as the health and well being of those they surround themselves with. Your responsibilities may be big, but your capacity to meet them is so much bigger. Through reflective and playful practices, you’ll discover the traits that give you the energy you need to be the person you always wanted to be. You’ll draw from the strength of the people that you’ve looked up to. And you’ll learn to see yourself through the eyes of those who look up to you. In that light, you can achieve a grounded sense of self, rooted and confident as you own your role as a role model. Workshop participants will participate in reflective practices that can contribute to a confident sense of self and will use hindsight as a foundation for future goal setting. This workshop is hosted by the Early Childhood Community Development Centre.
