Are you curious about the BC Early Learning Framework? Come and join us for a three-part workshop series that will dig deep into the newly revised framework. We will explore its changes, concepts, and language, and discover how it can be used in everyday practice to live, wonder and learn together. Focusing on the importance of play, we will use the document to support you in creating an inquiry for your early learning settings. The sessions are meant to be collaborative, and interested participants should come ready to explore the BC ELF and to engage in conversations about its possibilities. If you need inspiration to help ignite and energize your early year’s practice, please join us!
Copies of BC ELF, Play Today, and Let’s Play! will be provided
Suitable for all early learning professionals.

Aziza Jiwan-Rehmat, Sarah Eisman and Tara Marrington
Aziza Jiwan-Rehmat has been in the ECE field for over 13 years and is currently a YMCA CCRR Consultant. During this time, she has mainly worked with preschool aged children. Aziza has spent most of her career creating and developing curriculums for various childcare centres and she was later hired as an educator at SFU Child Care Society. Once she started learning more about the various types of philosophies existing in ECE, her passion quickly shifted to Inquiry Based Learning and she started referencing her practice within the BC Early Learning Framework. Sarah Eisman has worked in the early childhood education field for the past 12 years and is a consultant with the YMCA CCRR. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education and Care from Capilano University, and while there underwent a topic for her graduation project on one of her passions, the interconnectedness of our world, and the common world pedagogies that bind us, human and non-human alike. Sarah has had years of experience in emergent curriculum, pedagogical observation and narration, and has a love of writing that she eagerly brings to these pursuits to help make visible the important learning and work of children. Tara Marrington has been involved in the child care field for over 15 years, where she has worked with both preschool and school-aged children and currently is a YMCA CCRR Consultant. While taking her ECE, Tara developed a deep appreciation for the Early Learning Framework and the concepts of emergent, inquiry based programming. As her career advanced, she developed a passion for inclusive education that lead her to pursue an additional diploma in Classroom and Community Support at Douglas College.
