Fifth annual Summer Institute on early childhood development

Printer-friendly version
A conference co-hosted by George Brown College and The Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) to discuss teacher education programs for ECEs and primary educators.


George Brown College, Casa Loma
146 Kendal Avenue, E Building

Join leaders in early education at the fifth annual Summer Institute for a daylong series of workshops, group discussions and presentations.

The appointment of an Early Learning Advisor for the province of Ontario provides an opportunity to review the status of pre-service education for early childhood educators and for primary education teachers. Given the current climate of difference and distinction between the two professional domains, this year's Summer Institute provides an opportunity to discuss, evaluate and strategize the teacher education programs for both professions in Ontario.

The 2008 Summer Institute, co-hosted by George Brown College and the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, brings together professionals, policy experts, teachers, early childhood practitioners, university and college faculty, and researchers. Breaking the silos of teacher education and early childhood education provides an opportunity to consult, plan, and collaborate on the professional training needs of educators for integrated early learning environments.

The exceptional contributions of Aster Fessahai to the early childhood profession will also be celebrated. Hear her ideas about the future of the early years profession in Ontario.

The conference will be followed by a wine and cheese reception.
