Early Childhood Literacy Harvest
Growing a Community of Practice
Gather Share Grow
The Early Childhood Literacy Harvest will bring together over 250 New Brunswick Early Childhood Educators who work in licensed Early Learning and Childcare Centres and Homes. This event proudly recognizes and celebrates the early childhood profession in New Brunswick and will give you an opportunity to share and grow in your daily practices in early childhood literacy.
The event will kick off with an awe-inspiring presentation by Sheree Fitch – a multi-award-winning writer, speaker,
author of dozens of books, and educator. With strong ties to New Brunswick we are thrilled to welcome her back to New Brunswick – her home away from home. You will have over 10 early childhood literacy workshops and sessions to choose from and a chance to explore in the Literacy Learning Garden.
