Additional Notes:

SFU Childcare Society is an internationally recognized childcare centre, nestled on the campus of Simon Fraser University, where our physical environments and the experiences shared with children reflect the beauty and nature of our mountain location. We believe that children, educators, and families bring unique perspectives, skills, and knowledge to our Society which should be fostered through individual representation and shared understandings. We engage in intentional observation, reflection, long-term inquiry, and research as a way for children and educators to understand the process of learning and to fully immerse themselves in this experience.

We believe that it is important to create an environment where educators feel supported and that they are given the space to grow in their practice. Our educators connect with each other and their work through pedagogical dialogue, communities of practice, present at workshops and conferences, and have also published articles detailing their work with children and families. To support this work, our Society is committed to providing ongoing learning and leadership opportunities that connect with our mission, vison and core values. Join us in ‘Leading excellence in Early Care and Learning in a sustainable way.’
