Professional Learning Community

In addition to workshops, conferences, college courses and CEUs, a new format called "Professional Learning Communities"(PLCs) are settings where Educators' experience and expertise is utilized in a professional learning setting. Working in such a group provides rich conversations and new insights into educating young children and learning. PLCs are facilitated or guided by a specified individual as a supporter in partnership with Educators rather than an instructor or expert with all the answers. PLCs will provide an opportunity for Educators to engage in in-depth reflection of theory and practice in a supportive context with others who share similar interests and can offer varying perspectives.

Educators are invited to participate in the following Early and Care and Out of School Time Professional Learning Communities (PLC). During these sessions, educators will participate in reflective dialogue around a specific topic and discuss successes, challenges, and strategies that result in better programs for children in early childhood settings. This is an opportunity to learn from, with, and on behalf of each other as early childhood and out of school time professionals.
