Pedagogical Facilitator Project - Evaluation Report 2012

This document is an evaluation of the first year of the Community Early Learning and Child Care Facilitators Pilot Project, which began in October 2011 and concluded in June 2012.

The new pilot project incorporates the philosophy of the IQ project and some of its major activities, such as monthly learning circles for Early Childhood Educators, but incorporates a new Community Facilitator position. In the two pilot communities (Victoria and Coquitlam), community facilitators make regular visits to early years centres and collaborate with educators in documenting and reflecting on children's learning, introducing new materials, and transforming the early years environment to better support children’s learning. The project is also a key support to the continued implementation of the BC Early Learning Framework, introduced by the Ministry of Education in 2008.
