RETHINKING NAPTIME: CCCF WEBINAR

early chilldhood nap time webinar

Join us March 30th, 2022 from 8 – 9 pm EST for another live CCCF ECE Webinar on rethinking naptime.

Thank you to Wintergreen Learning Materials for their kind support of this event.

Does nap time in your program stress you out? Getting a group of children to nap in the same space at the same time can be a challenging task. We know preschoolers need to nap during the day…. or do they? What does the latest research say about this? What do we really know and understand about nap time for young children? Perhaps we need to rethink some of our naptime assumptions and beliefs.

Join expert sleep researchers from Western University, PhD Candidates Adam Newton & Monika Szpunar in rethinking naptime where they will cover sleep basics, the benefits of naps, the signs children are ready to stop napping, and the benefits of ending naps. 

Presented by Adam Newton & Monika Szpunar

Early Childhood Educators (ECEs) are incredible professionals that have rewarding, important and demanding careers. They work with young children (and their families), ages 0-12, nurturing and educating them, observing and planning for their growth and development while ensuring that they are healthy. They create interactive and dynamic learning environments where children develop social skills, develop cognitive skills and foster lifelong learning. ECEs work in child care centres, classrooms, home child cares, preschool, and parent drop-in programs. You do not need a teaching degree to be an ECE, but you do need your ECE diploma.

If you’re just starting out:

  1. Get certified!
  2. Find the requirements for your province or territory
  3. Write your resume and begin your job search. We’ll provide tips on this soon. 
  4. Get your vulnerable sector check and first aid training

Join our Facebook Group and meet other ECEs who may be able to answer your questions

All licensed and regulated quality child care programs in Canada require these for the safety and security of children and families.

On our provincial and territorial map we link to child care associations in your area. Follow the link to your association and join today. The associations provide valuable information to anyone starting out in their career. Even experienced ECEs can benefit. You’ll also enjoy valuable member benefits like discounts, meet other ECEs, and become a part of the child care movement in Canada.


If you join your provincial or territorial affiliate, you’re automatically also a member of the CCCF.

With your resume and cover letter ready (we’ll provide guides for this soon), contact child care centres and introduce yourself! You can call, email, or even message them on social media. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t get a reply. Try again a few days later to give them your resume in person. Remember that due to safety reasons you need to call first. Tell them you live in their area, and that you’re looking for a position.

Anyone working in licensed child care has to apply for certification. You will find certification information for your province or territory on our child care certification page.
