MFNERC’s Early Learning Facilitators will host our annual First Nations Early Learning Conference February 27-28, 2018.

“Children Embody the Past, Live the Present and Promise the Future”

 

 

The theme of this year’s First Nations Early Learning Conference is “Children Embody the Past, Live the Present and Promise the Future”.

 

The image of the child is rooted in culture, knowledge, personal histories, and aspirations for the future. The image of the child reflects not only a person’s belief about a child and childhood, but also beliefs about what is possible and desirable for human life at the individual, social, and global levels.

 

 

Keynote Speaker:  Dr. Margo Greenwood

Margo Greenwood is an Indigenous scholar of Cree ancestry with more than 20 years of experience in the field of early childhood education. Professionally and personally, children have been the focus of her life. She has worked as a front line caregiver of early childhood services, designed early childhood curriculum, programs, and evaluations, and taught early childhood education courses at both the college and university levels. As a mother of three, she is personally committed to the continued well-being of children and youth in Canada.
