    Parents as Partners - Social and Emotional Learning in the Early Years

    In the September Parents as Partners Series, we’ll focus on the aspects of a child’s learning journey.

    Brought to you in partnership with Life With A Baby and EarlyON Child and Family Centre Thornhill.

    Workshop Recommended for parents of children from birth to 6 years

    Social and emotional development is influenced by both biology and experiences. It refers to a child’s emerging capacity to regulate and express a range of emotions; develop positive relationships with adults and children; and confidently explore their environment and learn. Responsive and nurturing caregivers are essential for social and emotional well-being. We will briefly explore the biology and experiences that impact early childhood mental health and the ways in which parents and caregivers promote learning. In collaboration with Jacquie Gill, Registered Early Childhood Educator/Inclusion Practitioner.

    About Jacquie Gill

    Jacquie Gill is Registered Early Childhood Educator and an Inclusion Practitioner. She combines her mental health and child development knowledge, along with 19 years of frontline experience, to support children, families and childcare professionals. Jacquie began her career in childcare and spent her initial 10 years as the ECE in a school age program. After graduating from her Inclusion Practices program at Seneca College, she had the opportunity to begin working on the 0-6 team at Kinark Child and Family Services. Through this role she provides childcare consultations and other professional development opportunities for ECE’s, Assistants, and Students regarding children’s social and emotional development. She is accredited in 5 levels of the Triple P program and uses this knowledge to support parents and early childhood educators, in developing a plan to support the needs of child/ren.

    Hello Families!

    On Tuesday, September 30, you and your child are invited to join us online for two very special events featuring drumming, singing and storytelling, to commemorate Orange Shirt Day and the recently declared National Day of Truth and Reconciliation.


    At 11:00am: You and your child are invited to join us online when we welcome indigenous youths Jason Wemigwans and Wyatt Bell for a spirited gathering featuring drumming, singing and storytelling...with puppets!

    At 1:30pm: You and your child will virtually meet Author/Illustrator Juliana Armstrong and hear readings from her amazing and educational children's book "This is What I've Been Told". Juliana is also an Anishnaabemowin language teacher.

    These programs are in collaboration with EarlyON Markham, EarlyON Markham East and EarlyON Thornhill. Registration is offered via Eventbrite; please see below for details and link to register.

    Orange Shirt Day - A Spirited Observation (via Zoom)

    Birth to 6 years

    Thursday September 30 - 11:00am-12:00pm noon

    Jayden Wemigwans and Wyatt Bell of Indigenize Our Minds Education Program will sing songs, incorporating “The Orange Shirt” story book using puppets. Children will also learn about the colours that children see and how to dance to maintain focus. If time allows, there will be a question and answer period before the program closes.

    Click here to register

    This is What I've Been Told: Author Visit and Reading (via Zoom)

    Birth to 6 years

    Thursday, September 30 - 1:30-2:15pm

    In Juliana's story of language preservation 'This is What I've Been Told', she illuminates a number of Anishnaabemowin words along with their cultural connections, passed down from her Ojibway ancestors. Knowing our culture means knowing who we are. It's been said when teachings are passed down from one generation to the next, good things can happen. Language is learned, knowledge is shared and culture is practised.

    We hope you'll be able to join us for these dynamic, interactive programs in recognition of an extremely significant day.

    Best regards,

    Each year as a community chapter, LWAB York North chooses a charity to give back to.  This year, we have selected to do Samaritan's Purse Shoe Boxes - Operation Christmas Child.

    This is a great giving-back activity for the family.  In our family, I usually have each of my 4 children pick a box, age and gender of a child to shop for with their OWN MONEY and fill a box per the guidelines. They usually pick someone like them :) 

    I have pre-ordered 25 boxes for our chapter and am willing to order more if needed.

    DEADLINE FOR DELIVERING YOUR BOXES TO ME IS Nov 14th as National collection week begins Nov 15!! If you are interested in participating in this activity, PLEASE PRE REGISTER for as many boxes as you intend to fill and I will be in touch once I have them for pick up.  Pick up and drop off will be at my home in Holland Landing.


    MORE DETAILS TO COME RE SUGGESTED BOX CONENTS, DUE DATES, ETC. 

    Looking forward to giving back with you

    The events of the last two years, coupled with the startling gaps in healthcare services and delivery revealed by the pandemic, have made the need to make systematic and long-term changes to improve healthcare delivery and outcomes for BIPOC and racialized persons very clear. 

    The Building Strong BIPOC Families Conference is a one-day learning forum for healthcare and social support practitioners in perinatal mental and physical health. It’s an opportunity to hear the latest developments from sought-after experts. In addition, each workshop is an interactive opportunity for parents and practitioners to gain valuable insight and equip attendees with actionable strategies and tools to help families thrive.

    Given that we desire to offer and deliver the best care, we must reflect on what we bring to the design and how we influence its output, including unconscious and racial biases. Join us At Building Strong BIPOC Families 2021 to discover and explore what areas need to be addressed most urgently, how to better understand cultural and racial considerations, bias, intersectionality, and how to provide appropriate care to each patient you encounter.

    Self-Reg: Parenting in the Pandemic : This is a recording of the live session. You will receive the video link once your registration is complete.

    Parenting is often challenging, even more so these days as parents navigate the changes, uncertainties and anxieties associated with reschooling children during the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Stuart Shanker, author of Self-Reg (2016) and Reframed (2020), will introduce Self-Reg, a fresh approach that offers parents a new and more hopeful way of understanding and addressing the unique stressors children (and their parents) are facing during this unprecedented time. Dr. Shanker says recovery—how well we can stabilize after dealing stressors and challenges— is one of the keys to responding to stress in ways that promote growth and learning. “The more effectively we can recover from the energy expended to deal with a stressor, the more primed we are to deal with the next stress, and the next, and the next.” Topics will include: 

    • the impact of excess stress on our brain activity, and in turn our energy, tension and behaviour 

    • the five domains of self-regulation 

    • the difference between self-regulation and self-control, and between misbehaviour and stress behaviour 

    • Self-Reg: Dr. Shanker’s five-step method for understanding and managing stress, energy and tension 

    • co-regulation: the importance of relationships 

    • the importance of Self-Reg for parent well-being and effectiveness

During this period, he became increasingly interested in the impact of excessive stress on child development and behaviour.  Dr. Shanker’s five-step Self-Reg model, The Shanker Method®, is a powerful process for understanding and managing stress in children, youth and adults.

    In 2012 Dr. Shanker founded The MEHRIT Centre as a Self-Reg learning and information centre. Dr. Shanker commits considerable time to bringing the research and science of Self-Reg to parents, early childhood educators, teachers, educational leaders, health practitioners and communities through presentations, master classes, online courses, webinars, publications, social media and blogs.

    Love Builds Brains:
    As we navigate parenting and the pandemic, we want to explore what parents and professionals can do to support infant and children mitigate the negative impacts.

    This presentation explores the developing brain and the crucial role relationships with others play in healthy development. Relationships that are warm, responsive, and predictable help our children thrive, relationships that generate intense stress can harm the developing brain. 

    This workshop is geared towards parents with children aged 0-4 and  those who work with parents of children ages 0-4.
