BIO: Jacqueline Ewonus is the Program Director at SFU Childcare, overseeing 7 IT programs. She has a long relationship in the childcare field in different capacities over the past 25 years, including as a Licensing Officer in Vancouver. Jacqueline has recently returned from New Zealand, where she spoke at the Early Care and Learning World Forum on Research, Quality and Reflective Practice and most recently returned from Chicago, where she shared SFU Childcare Society’s view on pedagogical leadership at Leadership Connections 2018 National conference at the McCormick Center for Early Childhood Leadership.
WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION: All children come into this world and are born unique, they all have unique temperaments and personalities. Thus, for some children, taking risks comes more naturally than for others. Understanding the benefits of allowing children to make choices with risk allows us to better understand and support our children and their growth and development. Risk is inevitable, and without risk-taking opportunities, our children will be more apt to take impulsive and poor risks.
Participants will be asked to explore their feelings around risk, and what it means for infant toddler development. We will challenge common ideas and rules, and the problems that occur when we make decisions for children based on what we are comfortable with, rather than what they need.
