It’s Not About Easy — It’s About Following The Child!
In this workshop, educators will explore what true self direction is for young children — right from the earliest of ages.

Our Professional Development Certificates
Our Online ECE Workshops are created with the BC ECE Registry renewal requirements in mind. These state that Early Childhood Educators are required to complete 40 hours of professional development over the course of their certification term. (If you live in another part of Canada, it’s likely that our professional development certificates will be acceptable for your professional development hours. Outside of Canada, we are less able to confirm if our workshops would be acceptable.) Remember — you should keep track of your certificate expiry date so that you have enough time to finish the necessary professional development courses or programs. And you should choose courses or workshops that are relevant to working in the early childhood field – choose topics like:
- Child growth and development
- Child guidance
- Advocacy for children, families and the field
- History of early childhood education
- Self-care as related to supporting effective practice
- Development of program policies
- Addressing human resource issues
- Managing child care programs
- Maintaining children’s health, safety and nutrition
- Interpersonal communication
- Special needs
- Infant & toddler
All of the ECE Workshops that we offer have a direct connection to one or more of the topics listed above.
Upon successful completion of an Online ECE Workshop, we will provide you with a certificate that you can use toward your 40 hours. The certificate will contain a unique number that is linked directly to your learning experience with us. We log all of your work and interaction in our online learning management system and our customer relationship management software.
In the event that the professional development certificate is not acceptable or approved related to your certification or license renewal for some unexpected reason, due to a regulation or policy revision etc we will not be able to provide you with a refund for the workshop(s) you have completed with us. That said, we work hard to ensure our workshops are high quality and we believe they should be acceptable in BC and many other areas in Canada. We know our workshops provide our students with an excellent learning experience. Should you have an issue with one of our professional development certificates, please contact us. We may be able to provide you with further documentation so you can better demonstrate your learnings to the child care registry or certification office you are working with.
