Early Childhood Development and Diversity Workshops, Best Start Resource Centre

London, Ontario & Online
October 25 & November 10, 2010

The Best Start Resource Centre is pleased to offer two workshops related to early childhood development and diversity. These workshops are based on the content of a manual which will be released over the summer: Growing Up in a New Land – Strategies for Working with Newcomer Families. The two workshops will offer slightly different content. Both will be co-facilitated by Saleha Bismilla, an internationally-trained Registered Nurse, Midwife and Community Health Nurse with a broad experience working in the GTA, and Louise Choquette, the staff member from the Best Start Resource Centre who has developed the manual.

  • A face-to-face workshop will be offered in partnership with Childreach in London, Ontario on Monday, October 25th. This workshop is designed for service providers who work with parents and children through Ontario Early Years Centers, Healthy Babies Healthy Children programs, family resource programs, settlement programs and other parenting programs. Registration for this workshop is $35 and includes lunch and a copy of the manual. Registration information is available at:
  •  An evening webinar on Wednesday, November 10th. This webinar is designed for service providers working newcomer children ages 0 to 6 through daycares, schools and settlement programs (early childhood educators, teachers, teaching assistants, etc.). Registration for this webinar is $15 and includes a toll-free number and a copy of the manual. Registration information is available at:

Registration for both these workshops is limited and we expect a high interest for them, so don’t delay to register if you are interested.
