Our work is focused around the beliefs that children are creators of their knowledge through long-term project learning. Those who join us in our interactive workshops come from a variety of early childhood settings. They are as passionate about early childhood as we are. Each individual brings his or her own specific voice to the Possibilities ECE professional development environment. We focus on interactive formats as a model for how we wish to be in the world of early childhood education. We seek a variety of viewpoints and strengths to enrich our conversations. What we have in common---is our shared value of children’s endless possibilities.
