International Innovations in ECE: A Canadian Forum on Early Childhood Frameworks
Victoria, BC
July 13-15, 2012

Early childhood care and education is very much on the contemporary international agenda, and one key facet of that agenda is the introduction of early childhood frameworks. These frameworks have profound implications for early years policies, programs, research, and practice - they have provided the opportunity for numerous innovations in the field.

This conference, the first of its kind in Canada, brings renowned early childhood leaders from Reggio Emilia Italy, New Zealand, and Australia to Victoria, British Columbia for learning, sharing, and planning ways forward for Canada’s young children and families.

Featured conference speakers include:
Dr. Carla Rinaldi (Reggio Emilia, Italy)
President and inspirational leader of Reggio Children*

Dr. Margaret Carr (New Zealand)
Co-author of the innovative and influential Te Whaariki, New Zealand's bi-cultural early childhood curriculum framework

Dr. Jennifer Sumsion (Australia)
Co-leader of the national consortium that recently developed Belonging, Being and Becoming: The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia
