Program Description

The Partners for Children Program operates on the belief that:

  • Children are an integral part of our communities and need a nurturing, safe place to grow and learn.
  • Workshop activities and assignments should support a direct link between theory and practice.
  • Each workshop participant and facilitator is a part of a larger community; newly learned knowledge and practical skills will add to building community capacity.
  • Workshop materials, activities, and assignments are accessible, relevant and reflect the multicultural environment of Yukon.
  • We model respect for people of all cultures, races, and people with special needs.

To this end, the program works hard to respond to the training needs of those who are interested in early childhood development. It focuses on the challenges in our roles as parents, early childhood educators, care providers and community members, with a view to making our homes, childcare centres, day homes, and communities better for our children. Relevant and accessible workshops, training and support are provided to anyone who is interested in learning more about the early years in a child’s development. Workshops relate to the health and development of children ages 0-6, their families and communities.
