Think, Feel, Act Video Series

Think, Feel, Act: Lessons from research about young children: The Ontario Early Years Policy Framework describes how the experiences children have in the early years can have an extraordinary and long-lasting impact on children’s learning, development, health and well-being. Central to this is a view of children as competent, capable of complex thinking, curious and rich in potential. To support educators working in early years settings in their continuous professional learning, the Ministry worked with leading experts in the early childhood field to develop the following thought-provoking resources.
