“There are many unique things about the LLIF program. It has it’s foundation in the BC Occupational Competencies and the Early Learning framework- and my practice is stronger because of that. The philosophical teachings of Dr. Pille have changed my life as I regard everyone as my “legitimate other.” I am also grateful that I learned about song games ! This part of the curriculum is both unique and special because it facilitates the creation of a community of learners and it’s quite amazing to witness children’s imagination and literacy blossom over time”
The LLIF ECE program has been a program full of great surprises. I had thought all training programs would be the same but not here. We sat together for lunch at a large round table and talked about our practice. We asked each other big questions Dr. Fleurette Sweeney and Kate McCabe helped us expand our understanding of our work and the families we serve. I am friends with the many of my peers from the cohort and I still feel I can call the instructors and my mentors to ask for advice. This has been truly a meaningful program in my life.
