Coming Soon! Reconciliation and Indigenous Pedagogies in Early Learning and Child Care: CNC Webinar Series
CMAS is pleased to present an opportunity for CNC staff to learn about Canada’s Indigenous peoples’ history, knowledge and pedagogies while engaging in reconciliation. Reconciliation is the responsibility of all Canadians. But how much do you know about the Truth and Reconciliation Council of Canada Calls to Action?
Collaborating and creating space for Indigenous leadership in the early childhood sector is an important part of walking together in reconciliation. In this three-part webinar series, Elder Brenda Mason and Lori Huston, RECE, will share Indigenous knowledge and stories from their perspectives, teachings and lived experiences. Check your email for the schedule and registration information or contact email@example.com
NOTE: These sessions are only open to CNC-funded programs that are working with CMAS. The webinar recordings will be added to the website’s Learning Centre by the end of the month.

Organizations are responsible for managing their own online presence. Given that security risks can arise through the use of various online platforms and practices, we encourage you to carefully consider what works best to meet your organizational needs. To bring this important issue to the forefront, in December, we provided you with two important documents to support your CNC team in delivering safe and secure online supports: The Importance of Secure, Safe, and Professional Online Interactions, and Online Interactions Considerations Checklist. We are also hosting Virtual Cafés on online security to raise awareness and help identify measures to help keep yourself, your organization, and your CNC families safe. If you are offering online supports and/or services for children, we encourage you to attend a session.

Keep children moving while learning with daily, quick and creative physical activities. Ideally, kids should have two to three active play times every day. Instead of thinking of exercise as a separate scheduled activity, just try to weave quick “moving” moments throughout the day.
