Early Learning Professionals

Your Source for Professional Development

In the child care field, there's always something new to learn. It might be something practical, like a new circle time activity, or it might be something profound, like an entirely new teaching method. In any case, for both child care professionals and parents, a willingness to learn and grow is key to providing quality child care.

The Richmond CCRR offers a wide range of professional development workshops and training courses. Workshops are usually two to three hours in length, with topics carefully chosen based on the interests and needs of the Richmond child care community. Subjects covered include sensory play, positive guidance, emotional literacy, and more. It's also important to note that nearly all CCRR workshops count towards ECE renewal.

The course is so well-regarded that participants attend from across Greater Vancouver. Other courses available include Child Care First Aid, Safe Spaces, and Key Elements of School Age Child Care. 

While anybody can register for CCRR workshops and training courses, CCRR members receive a discount, so it's definitely worth signing up!
