Recognizing Prince Edward Island’s early childhood educators

Education and Early Childhood Development

Early childhood educators in Prince Edward Island are certified professionals who create optimum learning experiences for Island children, says Education and Early Childhood Development Minister Alan McIsaac.

"November 3-7 was Early Childhood Education Week. I hope all Islanders take some time to recognize all our professional and caring educators and staff in our early learning and child care system,” said Minister McIsaac. “It all starts with play. Early childhood educators develop trusting relationships with children and engage them in playful experiences. They provide children with opportunities where they can investigate, be creative, and learn about the world.”

The Government of Prince Edward Island is committed to building a stronger education system, which begins with early learning and child care. Government has demonstrated this commitment by making significant investments in the provincial early learning and child care system.

Government is pleased to work with the Early Childhood Development Association (ECDA) to continue to enhance the quality of programs and services for children, families and communities. The ECDA is committed to promoting and supporting quality early childhood programs and services for Prince Edward Island. They are a voice representing healthy child development for children, their families and those educating them.

“Early Childhood Education week is a great opportunity to recognize the contributions the early childhood educators make in your community,” said Sonya Hooper, Executive Director for the PEI Early Childhood Development Association. “Early childhood educators are the certified professionals who, through play-based learning, establish the building blocks for children to learn skills for life. Our organization supports early childhood educators to help Island families make the early years count.”
