*Meeting The Settlement Needs of Newcomer Children In Home Child Care

Module 3 (home child care option) in the Newcomer Series | taught by Judith Colbert, PHD

Course description

In earlier modules in the Newcomer Series, settlement is described as a process of transition and the distinctive needs of all those involved in settlement are considered, with a special focus on the needs of the newcomer child. In this module (3-H) you will have an opportunity to think specifically about the challenges of meeting the needs of newcomer children in home child care settings and to consider the overall role of programs that support home child care in the settlement of young immigrants and refugees.

Judith has been a writer, researcher & training specialist in early childhood education for many decades and an outstanding contributor to EYPDC.  With much sadness, we share the news of Judy's recent and unexpected death. Judy passed away suddenly, courageously and peacefully on March 1st at Guelph General Hospital with loved ones by her side.

As a Canadian consultant with an international perspective, much of her work has centered on young immigrant and refugee settlement, including drafting legislation in Canada and the US and speaking internationally. Judy's goal was to build bridges between research & practice, mainstream & newcomer experiences. She is particularly interested in the development of appropriate standards for the delivery of quality care for newcomer populations & in the relationship between the settlement of young children & their successful transition to kindergarten.

Judy made it known that she did not want her work and impact to disappear, and so we continue to offer her amazing content, in three areas, with respect and gratitude for her continued advocacy.
