The Building Bridges through Understanding the Village workshop will provide educators the opportunity to cognitively and emotionally comprehend how colonization affected Indigenous communities throughout generations. The participants will learn how to begin the process of decolonizing the education system in order to create culturally appropriate early childhood education programs. In her master thesis, Laura Jane Buchanan wrote: “This workshop is geared to solutions rather than recrimination and is a forum in which to ask questions.” The training maintains a non-blame and non-shame perspective and is an invitation to participants to become part of the ongoing healing that is already taking place in many Indigenous ‘villages’. Presenter: Kathi Camilleri Kathi is an Aboriginal woman who has coordinated healing programs in the Aboriginal Community for 19 years. She has a Master’s Degree in Leadership Studies. Kathi works with Aboriginal Mental Health and has her own consulting business. She facilitates strategic planning sessions and experiential workshops regarding Canada’s Policy of Assimilation and Colonization with social workers, foster parents, health care workers, church groups, students and educators, frontline workers in communities across Canada. The healing power and personal impact of this work elicits rave reviews. One participant wrote: “Kathi uses humour, kindness and wisdom to hold the space safely for us while we change how we see the world and how we forever interact with those who have Aboriginal Heritage. It is easy to learn because of her gentle ways, and her respect for all people.” Please note: – This workshop will be addressing Residential Schools and its effects in an in‐depth way. Participation may trigger unresolved grief and loss issues for some. – To register, please call 604-572-8032. – This session is open to participants who live or work in Delta. – Each participant will receive the revised BC Early Learning Framework book. – Doors open at 8:30 am. – Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

Play can take on many forms and can look different depending on age, space, place, and intention of the play. In this workshop participants will get an overview of what play is, based on Dr. Stuart Brown’s principles of play. Through the work of Dr. Stuart Brown, educators will get to distinguish between play with purpose and play without a purpose. Participants will think about making space for a diverse range of play for the development of young children and how to rework the space, place, and time they provide, to honour and cultivate holistic play with young children.
