As part of our ongoing professional development, Schoolhouse Playcare Educators will attend an evening and day time event titled "Relationships Matter: Connection is the Key" presented by Dr. Jean Clinton.
Dr. Clinton holds a Bachelor of Music Degree in Education and a medical degree and Fellowship in Psychiatry from McMaster University. She is renowned nationally and, more recently, internationally as an advocate for children's issues. Her special interest lies in brain development, and the crucial role relationships and connectedness play therein. Dr. Clinton has authored papers on early child development and poverty, infant neglect, children's mental health, resilience, and on adolescent brain development.

The event will be held on Thursday, October 13th 7:00 - 8:30 at the Thunder Bay Community Auditorium, and Friday, October 14th 8:00 - 3:30 at the Davinci Centre.
