Summer Institute on Early Childhood Development: Coping and competence

Printer-friendly version
The Centre for Early Childhood Development at George Brown College and the Atkinson Centre at OISE/UT presents the first annual Summer Institute on Early Childhood Development.

Location

Toronto
Canada

Co-sponsored by the Centre for Early Childhood Development at George Brown College and the Atkinson Centre at OISE/UT, the first annual Summer Institute on Early Childhood Development - Coping and Competence will take place June 23-25, 2004.

The Centre for Early Childhood Development at George Brown prepares its graduates to provide young children with the very best care and education. Building on its recognized strengths in applying theory and research in real settings, the centre provides future early childhood educators with a solid foundation in the theory of childhood development and practical experience working with children and families. The Atkinson Centre at OISE/UT works with community partners conducting research to better understand how children grow up in today's society and how this knowledge can be used to improve children's health, well-being, coping and competence.

Both centres are committed to providing opportunities for dialogue about new research and how to transfer knowledge to front-line practitioners. To promote this dialogue and highlight recent research in early childhood development, the Institute on Early Childhood Development has been established. The theme for the inaugural, 2004 institute is coping and competence. Participants will include early childhood leaders from child care organizations and schools, government consultants, policy analysts and college and university faculty.

Join the leaders in early childhood in reviewing the research and discussing the application to practice and policy making. Featuring:

- Dr. Fraser Mustard reviewing the science of coping and competence
- Dr. Janette Pelletier presenting findings on what works in supporting coping and competence

There will also be a series of workshops led by more than 15 early childhood experts including:

- presentations on evidence-based early intervention strategies that support coping and competence
- a panel discussion reviewing implications for public policy
