The Warrior Code: In this keynote address, Marc will speak about how having an ECEs code of honour helps our profession uphold a code of ethics. He will challenge us to uphold our ethical duty to leave today better than tomorrow. Quality early childhood education and care programs provide a “marvelous staging ground” for children to learn to live as human beings in a community. Marc Battle is an ECE instructor at Red River College in Winnipeg, who also works with Aboriginal Head Start programs.
Think about how you learned what your limits were or how far could you push your body and as a result painting a different image of yourself. How did you learn to negotiate with friends and say “no” to things that made you uncomfortable? How did you learn to take a chance on your ideas or your creativity? If everything is learned through experience, then many of us learned these valuable skills through taking a risk. Yet we are bubble-wrapping our children and shielding them from the risks that we participated in and blinding ourselves to the consequences of these actions. This workshop will explore the kinds of risk in children’s play, what they learn from it, and how we can allow children to risk safely.
