FREE PD Opportunities to Support Young Eaters

Mealtimes can be one of the most enjoyable parts of your day! 

Discover how with Nourishing Beginnings, a free online nutrition program created for Alberta educators by leaders in early learning and nutrition. Nourishing Beginnings takes a flipped classroom approach, which means that core content is introduced through a self-directed 30-minute online module that educators complete on their own time before attending a 90-minute group session. These group sessions are a partnered training opportunity with ARCQE that offer you valuable resources with a team you trust.

Module 1, Supporting Young Eaters, is
✓ Flexible – complete the online module and register for the facilitated session when it works for you.
✓ Real – see real-life videos, images, and scenarios from Alberta child care centres.
✓ Connected – share and learn with other educators during a facilitated group discussion.
✓ Supportive – benefit from unlimited access to the module and resources, plus support from a team of Registered Dietitians.

Upcoming Nourishing Beginnings Regional Online Sessions:

Thur, Dec 8, 7:00-8:30 PM Mountain Time
