Dear Home Child Care Providers and Staff,
We are delighted to follow up on our previous communication discussing professional development workshops. As a result of receiving full funding approval, we are pleased to not only offer these enriching PD experiences but to offer our child care providers equitable pay replacement for non-billed child care fees for the days dedicated to professional development. This initiative aims to support your continued growth and development in the field of early childhood education.
We are thrilled to announce that we have invited Anisha Angello, a renowned Early Childhood Education (ECE) Specialist, to be our professional development speaker. Anisha will be facilitating two empowering workshops on September 22nd, designed specifically for early childhood educators, including tweaks to meet the individual needs of home child care providers. These sessions promise to be dynamic, engaging, and impactful for personal and professional growth. This session, along with two additional dates (with different special guests) in October and November, forms part of our comprehensive professional development program.
Our goal is to schedule these professional development days during "work hours" that fall within school hours (as much as possible), allowing for maximum convenience. We understand that many of our child care providers have young children of their own, and we are exploring the possibility of providing on-site child care during the professional development days. This option will offer support to those providers who may not have alternative child care arrangements for their own children on these days.
Separate communications will be sent to child care families/clients regarding the three upcoming dates: September 22nd, a date in October, and a date in November. We strongly encourage the full participation and attendance of child care providers and staff on these Professional Development (PD) days. Similar to the scheduled Professional Activity (PA) days in various school boards, these designated days will serve as coordinated closures for all home child care providers involved.

Early Years at Home
When we refer to home we refer to a feeling of welcome, family, comfort and belonging. Licensed home child care offers the feeling of "home" with the benefits of early years pedagogy.
