New Pedagogist Posting closes Oct 21

Trail FAIR Society and the Trail & Castlegar CCRR are thrilled to be partnering with the BC Early Childhood Pedagogies Network (ECPN) and the West Kootenay (Nelson) CCRR to be co-hosting a regional Pedagogist project.

According to the Meriam-Webster dictionary, “Pedagogy is the art, science, or profession of teaching”

The Pedagogist is a newly developed professional role focused on leading early childhood educators’ pedagogical development and their licensed child care facilities’ pedagogical projects.  The incumbent works with educators, programs and staff in their local work context, collaborating with each program to organize and design pedagogical projects to meet the specific needs and context of each early years setting.  The Pedagogist aims to foster democratic, experimental and socially just cultures of early learning and care aligned with the vision of the BC Early Learning Framework through dialogical processes, innovative pedagogies and courageous conversations. Pedagogists will be hired to work within the Early Childhood Pedagogy Network (ECPN) Child Care Resource & Referral (CCRR) stream and will be hosted within a specific CCRR Program in British Columbia.
