Early Years Leaders Roundtables

Making Children Visible is one of the Learning Centre’s commitments. Our Early Years Leaders Roundtable is one of the ways we hope to bring those who are involved with direct work with children and those who are not, together to start conversations in public spaces.

We held our first Leaders Dialogue on November 16, 2017 in partnership with Capilano University and Capilano Children’s Centre. The topic was “Aesthetics and Pedagogy” and it was facilitated by Dr. Donal O’Donoghue of UBC and Dr. Cristina Delgado & Dr. Sylvia Kind of Capilano University. We were so fortunate to have a wide variety of leaders, including Robyn Newton from the City of Vancouver & Shaun Dacey, director of Richmond Art Gallery in our company.

Dialogue & Dessert

 Dialogue & Dessert Roundtables are one of Frog Hollow’s initiatives to invite people in the community into childcare spaces.

 Our first roundtable was held on November 8, 2017 and a very diverse group of people from the community – including parents, educators, teachers, professors, and professionals from public libraries, Fraser Health Licensing sector & Supported Child Development attending.

 With the provocations of Dr. Christianne Hayward, the group discussed what it means to complexify the notion of the “competent child” that is now so easily spoken of among us.
