Evidence is building that current parenting and educational practices may be doing more harm than good, in terms of children’s well-being. This module will be covered in two parts. This module discusses research that creates a picture of the current situation for the majority of Canadian children in terms of physical activity. Excerpts from recent annual report cards completed by Active Healthy Kids Canada form the framework for the discussion.

Infants and Toddlers – Reflecting on and Improving Practice

Author: Sue Martin

1 ECE Hour

Learning Continuum: Foundation

This is a module designed for practicing Early Childhood Educators who desire to review elements of their current practice with the intention of designing, implementing and altering parts of their practice to meet the particular needs of very young children and improving their responsiveness to, and interactions with, babies and toddlers. Your reflection might be on a major scale, or be related to a more minor issue that would be addressed. An integral part of the philosophy must be reflective of culture and family; not only the individual child.

This module is an overview of Reflective practice, and part of a series designed for infant and toddler professionals. The first module is relevant to all age groups as a starting point for the journey of reflective practice.
