At Possibilities ECE, a purpose driven company, our mission is making connections within the Early Childhood Community. We share our ideas though participation in social media and blog posts about our practice with children. We host professional development opportunities from on-site workshops to presentations at professional conferences across the country. The next step in our collaboration with the Early Learning Community is to offer online learning.
Our first class is titled, Exploring Deeply: Fostering Creative Thinking in Early Childhood. Exploring deeply asks educators to consider how we support children as competent learners? How do we take time to examine our roles as educators, and how do we support deep inquiry in our classrooms? In class, we reflect on creative thinking, supporting young children as explorers, using inquiry in the classroom, and becoming co-learners with the children through the course.
At Possibilities ECE, we want to share small acts of service within the Early Childhood Education Community. The classes we offer come from a desire to use our experience and knowledge to share with others, so children, families, educators, and the learning community will grow and thrive.
Our mission is to offer classes and to support as many educators and providers as possible. Our intention is to change how we think about education by focusing on the learning and shaping of ideas. Our classes’ focus on the personal development of professional self therefore we do not offer certificates or documentation of your educational experience. Additionally, we believe the cost of professional development should not be a barrier for an individual or group to further their knowledge and improve their practice. With this in mind, our intention at Possibilities ECE is to offer our classes and let you decide their value.
The way we can offer classes with no initial cost is to partner with the members of the learning community. We want to invite you to establish a connection with other educators. We are going to invite all educators to help each other, fund our work, and our mission.
We love this idea so much we wanted to create classes that we give freely and then watch as the learning community gives to each other. If you feel our classes are of value, and would be of value to others, all you have to do is click the Pay It Forward button in the Online Learning section of the website and make a contribution for the next person. On the payment page it says $0.00. Then it is up to you.
Thank you for taking into consideration our mission, we hope you enjoy and gain benefit from our classes. It is our pleasure to serve you and all of the members of the early childhood learning community.
Best wishes on your learning journey,
Greg and Ingrid at Possibilities ECE
